    Hows it goin? I have a 89 Dx, and it seems that everytime I put gas in my car the gauge will not go to full. It goes to 3 quarters of a tank and stops. Sometimes after a day of driving it will go to right below full. I thought it was supposed to go down when you drive, not up! Anybody have any clue at all to what this could be? any help is much appreciated!

    I'd guess it's probably the sending unit as well, or possibly a gauge but that wouldn't be my first thought. Honestly you're going to have to test it yourself to be sure because most of the time it's almost impossible to know for sure what's wrong on a message board when we can't see your car. However if I was to guess based on your description the sending unit would be the first thing I would look at.
