THERE IS A DEFECT IN THE FUEL GAUGE INDICATOR. IT WILL RANDOMLY DROP FROM THE TRUE FUEL LEVEL TO ZERO FUEL. AFTER SOME VARIABLE TIME PERIOD IT WILL AGAIN GO FROM ZERO FUEL TO THAT ACTUAL FUEL LEVEL. THIS IS A SAFETY HAZARD BECAUSE IT CONFUSES THE DRIVER AS TO HOW MUCH FUEL THERE IS IN THE FUEL TANK AND MAY CAUSE THE DRIVER TO STOP THE CAR IN AN UNSAFE LOCATION. I HAVE HAD THIS CAR FOR SEVEN YEARS AND IT HAS PERSISTED ALL THESE YEARS. I CHECKED THE WEB AND OTHER FORD EXPLORER OWNERS HAVE THE SAME COMPLAINT. I BELIEVE THAT FORD SHOULD RECALL THESE CARS AND FIX THIS SAFETY HAZARD.
