 Description of the problemThe fuel gauge is not working properly from 2-3 months and i started noticing it by early june 2016. When gas is filled, it displays the full tank gauge. But after stopping at any place and then starting the car, the fuel gauge drops by few bars to half a tank. Next morning when i start my car to go to office it would show empty tank with gas light on but will correct itself to few bars to half a tank to full tank. I had visited hyundai dealership on oct 12 2016 and they said its out of warranty by 62 days and my extended warranty of 100,000 miles only covers engine and transmission. They also said it will cost 750 plus $ to replace the "fule pump" to fix this issues. To avoid any empty gas situation i always rest my trip b to zero, after full tank.
