My car's gas guage is so strange. i fill up and then go almost 80 miles and its still on full. by the time i am at half tank i have about 220 -230 miles. but then the second half goes by so fast. i only get about 300 miles on each tank. WTF!?!?!

My car's gas gauge doesn't give a reliable reading on how much gas I have in my tank. When I fill up my tank, the needle goes way past full, then I'll look down a few minutes later and it's sitting on half a tank, but then I'll go up a hill or something and it'll shoot back up to full. POS :bonk:
