    Ever since the ethanol was added to gas, the newer engines and electrical parts began to fail. Since GM was bailed out by the Govt, maybe GM will help bail out the consumer by having a recall on the fuel system problems.

    My Envoy XUV just turned 66K and the fuel guage will bounce all the way to E, stick there for a little while then bounce back to the actual? fuel level. Edmonds Forums say it could be the tank sensor or the instrument cluster. My question is do I have the repair done or deal with it until GM determines whether or not to recall?

    Mine is completely inoperable now. I have to fill up and reset my odometer just to have some sort of idea how much gas I actually have. VERY freustrating!

    I had a 2005 GMC Envoy that had the fuel sensor go out on it while still under warranty. Went back to the same GMC Dealer and up graded to a 2006 Envoy- SAME ISSUES I believe the darn sensors are faulty from the MFG. This happened to both with LOW MILEAGE.... I have less than 120,000.00 miles on this vehicle and am getting tired of having to reset the Trip - and have to fuel up with a full tank eacgh time getting gas to have a accurate reading. GMAC just needs too EAT the cost of labor and repair since this is clearly been on going issue for years

    This problem has be ongoing for years... each unit has diff problems. Some the cluster is bad, some have a fuel gauge buffer this is in the dash some where and others are the fuel sending unit. GM is not the only vehicle that has this problem. Nissan also has it on the Pathfinders, Frontier and Infinity QX56 and FX, along with others.

    I know what this is. I have a 2004 trailblazer and the speedometer went nuts on me. I fixed it myself after doing some research. On the back of the instrument cluster there are stepper motors for each gauge. If they go bad, the gauge fails to provide the correct readout. This is true for the gas gauge and the speedometer and tachometer as well. Google "speedometer failure trailblazer" and you will find lots of complaints. The stepper motor is $12. I was able to find a site that listed how to repair it. GM wanted $600.

    This report is a day late and a dollar short. The s10 series has had a problem with there gas gauges ever since they where made!!! The Feds are only looking at it now??? People get with it, If you drive 150 miles you know you have about a half a tank, So go fill it up again. Take some reasonably for a change.

    Yep, our company has an S-10 with this problem. My boss says I'm crazy, but that gauge is all over the place! That truck has stranded me several times. Just add this to the list of problems we've had with it...
