The guage works intermittently. And sometimes fluctuates widely. I assumed it was the sending unit and have attempted to locate a replacement with no luck. Does this vehicle have a sending unit or a level sensor? If it is a sensor, why does it cost so much more than some sending units I've priced?
Do you
have the same problem?

Check all the connectors in the fuel gauge circuit, move them around, unplug and re-insert them again may correct it.

My 150000 mi 97 Safari's gauge has not worked in years, I just use the odometer, start with a full tank at ZERO each time I get to 300 miles, I fill it up again. (Reset odometer to 0 again)
Never ran out of gas doing it that way.
My gauge reads full all the time I figured if someone steals it, they will run out of gas, LOL!
