I'd go, but no way I'd get there early enough. I'm working way down in highlands Ranch and traffic on a Friday would be nasty headed up there. Too bad it's not a Sat.

Check the grounds. Then clean up the connection at the sending unit. My Syncro only showed 3/4 on the gauge when full it now reads at the top.

About 3 weeks ago, my fuel gauge didn't show the correct level when I turned on my key. It acted as if the key was off and the fuel level needle was stuck to the far left side of the gauge.
