Detroit, MI  (SafetyAlerts) - Audi, a division of Volkswagen has announced the recall of certain 1998-2000 Audi A6   Quattro automobiles because the fuel gauge may act erratically and not display the correct amount of fuel left in the tank.

According to Audi, The fuel tank may show full when the vehicle only has a half a tank of gas.  It may also show a half a tank, when the vehicle is empty.
