Default Bad Gas Meter?

So, I just put $20 in my gas tank on saturday. It was one E when i put the gas in. Ever since then, i drive and my meter on my dashboard goes up and down. Not right away, but it'll go above the full line, and then later it will be down to half way between full and 3/4. Then it will go back up again. Can anyone please tell me what is going on?

Could be a sending unit, or the float or a wire.....

My explorer constantly does that. Park facing downhill with anything under 1/4 tank and it won't start again.

If it does it while you are sitting still then you most likely have a short in the sending unit. I know in my pickup right around 3/4 tank the needle will twitch up and down constantly until I burn it off so get the sending unit off the short.

Well.. I guess you should look down the fill spout to see if you overfilled it. (don't use a lighter)

Truthfully it will most likely get back to normal but if not, just keep it full cause running out sucks.

Useful information: Is it full? What year, make and model is it? How many miles are on it?

Did it just start doing this? I know my Tundra fluxuates a little, but almost not even noticeable. I would stand by the sending unit starting to go, or just a natural fluxuation.
