The gas gage on the Pontiac Sunfire is not stable. It will move up and down when the car is in park and still running. I have ran out of gas when the gas gage was set at 1/4 of a tank left. This needs to be fixed and I don't think I should have to pay for it. This is a dangerous thing to be happening, it could have ran out of gas on the highway in the night. Sandra
