My gas gauge stopped working last October. Since then it has read FULL at all times except when the ignition was turned off. I have read several opinions of what causes this and how (if at all) the problem can be fixed - everything from pulling certain fuses to cutting open the area behind the passenger seat to get access to the fuel tank and sending unit. The former didn't work and the latter too draconian so for the past several months, I simply filled the tank when 100 miles came up on my trip meter (requiring that it be reset at each fill-up, of course). Yesterday, without any fanfare, the gas gauge began working again! After starting the car, the needle slowly started to come off FULL and within ten miles, read slightly more than HALF full - about what I estimated was in the tank, given I had driven about 98 city miles since my last fill-up. And, this morning when I started the car, the gauge went right to the same reading as last night. Will this good fortune remain? Who knows but it beats the hell out of ripping open the interior of the car to fix the sending unit. They say, "patience is a virtue."
