My gas gauge wasn't reading correctly, so I replaced the fuel level sensor and now the garage is off by about 1/4 of a tank. Is this a a faulty sensor or something else?

I believe there is a way to calibrate the gauge, try looking on you tube.


Before I replaced the sensor it would glitch out and the gauge would go past empty
