Fuel gauge is inaccurate. After filling up the indicator reads empty. Twice we have run out of gas even though the indicator shows that there is still gas in the tank. Dealer recommended using techron to help clean the indicator. However, after filling up with gas with techron today, the fuel indicator showed empty. This has been and ongoing problem for nearly a year now.
