    I filled the truck the other day and the gas gauge has not moved off full? Short of a small "gas reproducing in my tank miracle", I think it's stuck.:mad:

    I pulled the fuse for the gauges and the needle does not drop. Anyone know how to check or fix it???????????????????

    I beat on the dash and that didn't work

    Blessed be the man with the always full tank. Sounds like a number of things, all of which require a shop to look at. Wish it was true, that you didn't have to refill again......but you couldn't be that lucky

    What things?? I have plenty of time to look at it and a small budget that I am not willing to hand over to the dealer at $78.00 hr

    What year is your truck? Also, I4 or V6? Hard to determine what the problem is if details are lacking. Kind of like a surgeon giving directions via phone for heart surgery, if you know what I mean. Could be related to the fuel tank, could be a short from the fuel tank to the gauge. Could be a gauge that has simply gone to a better place (it's dead).
