    Default Weird Fuel Gauge Issue

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Driving back from the Lakes today, getting low on Diesel so I filled up. Stopped off in Kendal for 5 mins.
    On my way down the M6 noticed the gauge was on the red tick between the 3/4 and the 1/1, thought that was strange as I brimmed the tank. A further 10 mins pass and again the gauge had dropped to 3/4. I thinking, I have a cracked tank and have a leak. (about 30 miles covered from fill up to services)
    Stopped at the services to give the car a once over.

    I turned the ignition off and turned it back on, all OK....slight bemused I was/am

    Thats kind of what I thought, but I would have expected the needle to be erratic.
