Default gas gauge?

does anybody with a 99 SE have the same weird computer problem that i do?

When i fill up all the way to full, the gas gage slowly goes down after i start driving. like all the way to empty then all the way back up. weird huh?

Could be a ground problem, or the sender unit is going bad in the tank.

Edit, do any other gauges move funny?
