thats weird...you could let the dealer look at it if your under warranty. I have a spare gauge laying here, GT 5 speed if you want. $15

Maybe a led burned out? I'd take it to the dealer if you're under warranty.

The LED is the light behind the gauge ont he circuit board, if it burned out he would still be able to slightly see it and some of the gauge would be dimmer. It could be an issue with the LCD...get it looked at.

EDIT: if you end up going to the dealer for warranty work, take off the indiglows...they will blame it on that.

yeah, i'd definately take it to the dealer. that should fall under warranty seeing as it is not "normal wear & tear" for ur fuel gauge to be inaccurate.
