Fuel Pressure Gauge goin crazy

Anyone ever seen this? My Glowshift fuel pressure gauge started doin this randomly...I already called Glowshift and the service tech told me it was a grounding issue...I didn't see any loose grounds when I looked everything over...and it does this randomly. For example...it did it today on the way home from work...but hasn't done it since last weekend. It's not a mechanical issue for sure...I think the gauge or the sender is going...anyone ever had this happen?

is the sending unit hooked directly to the service port? i cant remember what vendor sells the extension, but it moves the sending unit away from the heat and vibration of the engine.

My Glowshift guage is doing the same thing. I'm pretty sure it's the sending unit. My guage is less than a year old so it should be covered by the warranty. But the Glowshift website has the sending unit for about $16. I keep forgetting to deal with this thanks for the reminder.

Iv been looking for that extender and cant seem to find one. I went to the local hardwear shop and pieced together a few fittings but its still getting rattled around if I could find one that would work better i would jump all over it.

Yeah...mine came with that extender. When I pulled the gauge out earlier to unplug it and plug it back in...it was really hot. Is that normal?
