I think your fuel guage is broken, not much help I know but what did you expect? I like your datto tho


its either time to pull the tank or replace the gauge, the fuel float in the gas tank may not be metering right, you may have to pull the tank with a older car like this its more of that case,


yea check out your gas tank firsy and then if nothing wrong with that then u probably need to change ure fuel gauge mostly likely
