Gas Gauge

So a couple fill ups ago I was riding on the highway and looked down and noticed that my gas gauge was not at full like it should have been. It showed 1/4 tank less than full.

I thot it was just a fluke with the pump and thot nothing of it. I filled up again at the same gas station at I think the same pump a few days later and the same thing happened.

My gas gauge seems to drop quicker now than it used to.

Im going to see if its the station tommorow when i fill up.

Otherwise what could be causing this and how would I fix a broken gauge ... if thats what it is??

Thanks ya'll

I have no idea, mine is just REALLY weird. It fluctuates a ton and when I put a full tank in it it goes a good amount past "F" lol.


Thanks
