Default do they make an aftermarket gas gauge?

as many of you already no and i found out from reading up in the search section that certain bonnies have a gas gauge that has some play and is not always acurate..

my gas guage will say i have between a quarter tank and empty when ever there is 8 gallons or less of gas in the tank.. also when i drive it goes up and down like the oil gauge deos when i step on the gas.

therefor i was wondering if here is any way to install a aftermarket gauge to have exact calculations of how much gas i got in my tank.....

Replace your sender or fix the corrosion issue for less money.

The sender is in your fuel tank. A possible corrosion spot would be the connector just outside the tank.
