this is a common problem in our cars, the fuel gague tends to move alot when driving. You do have a 92 that had tank design that had some baffle/ pump and strainer issues that sometimes caused the car to stall on turns

I would replace the Tank, cause its likely that you may have a broken baffle in the tank

the pump/strainer assembly is in the tank and you must drop the tank to replace it
