My gas gauge when register 4/5 gal it goes up to full, and slowly comes down, and goes back up. We fill the car with only five gal knowing is has only 3/6 gal the gage shows full, and as you drive it goes up and down from 2 gal to full back and forth. We were told that there was a recal on all 1997 Cadillac Deville gas tank because of that paticular problem, we have taken this veh to GM dealer and they say they is nothing wrong with the gas tank, if there was a recal we would like to know the file number and the dates of the recall.

The last three years, the gas guage in the veh. Registers approximately 4 gal, a while latter its back up to full, and goes up and down, you get about 10 gallons of gas the guage shows full, and then you drive a while the guage goes down to 8 gal. This is constant. We have reported this problem to a Cadillac dealler here in nc and they keeps telling us there is nothing wrong with the gas tank. I have taken this car for this problem three time and they keep telling me there is nothing wrong. My wife contacted massey Cadillac where we leased it from, and they informed us that, all 1997 Cadillac Deville gas tanks were recalled for that kind of problem. I told this to the Cadillac dealer here in nc and they informe us it is not so. It is a problem, we have to stop and fuel this veh, many time on a trip because we don't know how much gas there is in the tank. I would like your assistance on this matter, it is driving us nuts. No one want to do a thing about it. I want to thank you for your assistance in this matter john.

I was travelling at 80 mph in the far left lane when the vehicle lost power- the gas indicator indicated that I had 5 gallons of gas left and could go 110 + miles. Yet when I finally got the car to the side of the road and tried to start it again, it indicated empty. This is the fourth time this has happened. Dealer says he can't find anything wrong.
