Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I only had about 1/4 of a tank of gas but when i got in the car the fuel read 3/4. the Temp gauge was wiggeling back and forth for a bit, then after about 10 minutes of driving, they went back to normal.

Most times it's the fuel level gauge sensor in the fuel tank that gets worn and gives you a false reading.
