My 93SSEI goes to empty when I fillup,( I don't top it off) after about 20 miles it goes to full. I've learned to live with it.

Alright, I drove about 10 more miles on the highway, and just like that the needle went to Full. Don't feel like wasting premium at 2.06 a gallon so I'll wait till I drive some more to see if it'* functioning. Sounds like it should be though. Thanks for all the ideas.

Topping off after the click, has proven to set codes off. I don't see a point to topping off, you'll never use it, and it stops for a reason.
uh.. most people 'top off' so that instead of paying something like $15.06 they can just round it up to $16.00 and not get change back. I've topped off my tank before more than a gallon after it shut off, I've never had a single problem. Topping off hasn't been proven to set codes off.

Well, it seems to be functioning correctly. I went out of town this weekend so I'm about due to fill up again. This time I'm not going to top off I guess.
