Fuel gauge goes up while driving

My fuel gauge goes up from where ever it is to full while I am driving... I should have like 3/4 of a tank and it climbs to past full while I am driving?

Your fuel gauge sending unit is most likely the cause.

Yes you do only takes about 30 minutes to drop the tank and get the sending unit out. Be advised the sending unit new from the dealer is like 350 dollars.

you should check to see if the fuel level sending unit is reading wrong. that is what is wrong with mine it will go level on my obs. but sounds more like fuel level sending unit to my and not a cluster. good luck man

It's the Magic Refill MOD! I want that one!

I usually pull the bed also when I have to work on the tank. Alot easier than sliding around on your back all day.
