Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
This could be a bad ground at the tank. sometimes rust builds around the connector and prevents the gauge from making ground. the tank might have to be lowered to fix the problem.

Mine did that too, at only 30,000 miles. Was $1,000 to fix, because everything around it would have to be replaced, better off just keeping track with the digital fuel usage if you have the trip computer option in your jimmy. When you have a leak in your tank or bad fuel pump (which I finally had at 140,000 miles), is when you should get it fixed.

Your car has a bad gauge or the sending unit is defective.

there is a short in the wire going from the gauge to the tank. ck the wiring under the truck from the tank going forward, and ck if anything looks like its rubbing on the wiring harness.
