Fuel gauge on 156 1.6 TS.

Seems to fluctuate, i'll start her up and will stay low for ages even though i know its got more in then will rise, then drop again!! annoying! Any ideas i.e. "they all do that" or is it something else? cheers.

Alfa gauges fluctuate quite a lot as the fuel sloshes round in the tank. Not enough for you to see it fluctuate but enough to see it on a small journey. You might have an earthing issue but that is a whole other can of worms

"they all do that, sir"....is the only realistic response.......you get used to that rush of euphoria when you end a journey with more fuel shown than when you started........sadly it isn't real..
