I WAS DRIVING MY 2005 FORD EXPLORER WHICH I PURCHASED BRAND NEW IN OCTOBER 2004, WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY GAS GAUGE WAS READING E AND MY SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT WAS ON. THIS HAPPENED MAY 13, 2005. I IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT IT TO THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT THE FUEL PUMP NEEDED TO BE CHANGED. SINCE I HAD FILLED THE TANK THE DAY BEFORE THEY WANTED ME TO DRIVE AROUND AND USE THE GAS UP. I REFUSED AND THE WOUND UP DRAINING MY TANK. WELL AFTER FILLING MY TANK UP ON JANUARY 20, 2006 AGAIN MY GAUGE IS READY ALMOST E AND THE DASH KEEPS TELLING ME I HAVE A LOW FUEL LEVEL. THIS TIME I WASN'T EVEN DRIVING IT HAPPENED AFTER RESTARTING MY CAR WHEN THEY FINISHED PUMPING MY GAS. BACK TO THE DEALER I GO AND AGAIN I AM TOLD THAT THE FUEL PUMP NEEDS TO BE CHECKED OUT AND OR CHANGED AGAIN BUT THIS TIME THEY DRAIN THE GAS AND SINCE THE TANK IS FULL I AM SUPPOSED TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE UNTIL I USE MOST OF THE GAS. I AM TOLD THEY DO HAVE THE PART IN STOCK TO MAKE THE REPAIR. I DON'T LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING TO DRIVE AROUND NOT KNOWING HOW MUCH GAS I HAVE. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
