When i turn the car on the fuel guage goes straight to full even if ive done a few hundred kms. On short trips it stays at full but on longer trips it will drop to halfway then at a certain point goes back to full. Any1 have any idea what might be the problem the gauage or the sender or both? Any ideas tips much appreciated.
In advance thank you.

Mate,90% of the time fuel guage problems are the earth strap to the sender.
It's a clip on strap that runs from the sender fuel pipe(at the tank)to the body.
After 40 odd years all the road grime,etc prevent them from earthing real well.

It may not be your problem but it's the 1st thing to check and it's a zero dollar thing.

Sounds like the tank sender is faulty. Check your earths first though, as Ken said, this is usually a problem area.
