Fuel Gauge Problems....

My problem is this, my fuel gauges always show way past full when the key is on or off. It started a couple winters ago, it would read correctly and when the truck warmed up they gauge would eventaully end up way past full. This last summer the gauge went past full and stayed there. Any suggestions??

This is a 1996 F250 PSD.

Thx in advance

i have a 96er also. mine doesn't do that to me. the only time it goes past fuel is when i fill up.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

if you have 2 tanks i think that the fuel gauge is made for the reserve tank because the main tank is bigger and which when ever ya fill up the main tank it will go past full

The gauge needle never moves. It is past full and stays there, dosent matter if the tank is full or empty.
