thank you Gary.
Buick Mechanic: Gary, Buick Technician replied 3 months ago

the odds are the fuel level sender in the tank part of the fuel pump module assembly is bad causing this problem

once that is replaced the fuel gauge should read correctly

you can always get me back through here even after you rate me
