Check your fuel pump fuse(s). Some vehicules have 2 circuits for the fuel pump. When you initially turn on the key, the computer primes the fuel system and will give you enough fuel for about 30 seconds. Then once the engine is started, the oil pressure switch fires a relay that keeps the fuel pump running. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH 97 350 CHEVY VORTEC.
THE FUEL GAGE FLUXUATED AND BY TROUBLE SHOOTING
I FOUND THE FUEL SENDING HAD SHORTED OUT.
