I bet if you stand on it real hard as if you were racing it will do the same thing right after launch or just after a hard shift.
There maybe another issue, but the above scenario is very common with lower fuel amounts and no baffling in the tank.
Might be on to something here. My fuel gauge doesn't work but I'll try with a full tank and see what happens. I'm thinking, based on the km on the tank that I'm on the top side of half a tank.
