Haven't done much other testing since I had other priorities.
Depending on your stance that would be an issue. Know the Chevelle has the fuel pick up in the front of the tank and the only time it stays full is when it is full while you are driving. Once it burns some gas out it goes to empty when you take off and full when you hit the brakes. Have to be at a complete stop on a slight incline to get a true reading!
