    Possessed Fuel Gauge.

    Took a friend out for a spin with over a quarter of a tank of petrol, hammered it round a roundabout, and the fuel light/beep came on.

    For the next few miles the needle started randomly going up and down from zero to a quarter.

    Switched the engine off, then on,............no change.

    Started the car again an hour or so later and all seemed fine.

    Drove it the day after and it's gone potty again

    Maybe an airlock or something?

    Has anybody else experienced this?

    Cheers

    I had a 77' 911 SC last year and whilst stationary one day the rev counter needle was flying from 0-7000 revs for no apparent reason, only did i t the once though. 2 days later the battery died, put on a new one then it was ok.

    Your'si s probably a faulty sender unit in the fuel tank i woul have thought though.

    Hmmm, I wonder what sort of money Audi want for one of those.
