1994 Impreza

Default Fuel/Gas Gauge is Dead!

I have a 1994 Impreza L AWD/AT/AC with 131,000 miles. I've recently completed a 500 mile mud&snow TSD rally in British Columbia on very bumpy ice covered logging roads.

Roughly 600 miles after I completed the Rally, my gas gauge started behaving erratically. If the tank is filled to 3/4-1/1 full, the gauge will intermittently display either the correct reading or 0/1. If I drive 50-75 miles (roughly 1/4 of the tank used) then the gauge goes completely dead.

I've checked all my fuses in the fuse box under the hood, and none are blown. The car's driving behavior hasn't changed any, no new rattles or squeaks - just the gas gauge seems affected.

What should I try next in terms of trouble shooting?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

Most likely the level sender in the tank is shot.
