I ran out of gas about two weeks ago. My problem is that when the gage gets down to about an eighth of a tank it stops going down. I suspect the ground. This is because I had a previous problem...

I got both of mine from Advance Auto Parts. My original box was fine; it was just leaking. I usually prefer new parts. That's why I replaced it. Live and learn.
