RE: [DML] Fuel Gauge Needle Drop Rate

Is it possible that you have a gas leak at the top of your tank and you
are actually losing gas faster when the tank is full?  Lotsa places for
leaks up there...   Top off the tank, drive the car home, then sniff
around for gas, look for leaks, and consider removing the access cover
over th pump to look fopr leaks.

I have the same problem with my gauge/sender. I'm even lucky if it will
go all the way full after I fill it up. I don't know of anything to fix
it. I've tried a couple of things short of dismantling the sender. I
have a theory that it is because of the shape of our tanks. The fuel has
less area towards the top and the level drops faster until it gets to
the 3/4 area where it acts normal. Perhaps a sender's sensors could be
adjusted to accommodate this? I'm not sure.

When I fill up the fuel gauge needle show full but after just a few 
miles it drops at a fast rate to about 3/4 of a tank. Then it seems to 
drop at a normal rate. Does anyone else have this problem and can it be
