    Thats odd... ive noticed mine twitching a bit but i believe its because of a float in the tank that measures the amount. Correct me if Im wrong someone. Ive never experienced that much a jump though.

    Every time my gas gauge gets to 1/4 of a tank it falls to empty and returns to 1/4 of a tank until i fill it up again. I have no idea why???????? Sorry I cant help buddy.

    Mine does the exact same thing as yours. It only starts when I'm at about 1/4 of a tank. It will go to empty and stay there until I fill up again. Weird
