I haven't had my XJ long, so I don't know if this is typical, but it seems like when the gas gauge gets to around half a tank and I go around a corner hard (as I have been known to do), it bogs and hesitates like it's starving for fuel.
I guess I could understand if it were under a quarter tank, but there should still be plenty of fuel back there.
I suppose that the guage could be really off, but, I haven't driven more than around 150 miles. The trip odometer stuck while I was trying to keep track of the mileage, so I can't say for sure now.

Has anyone else experienced this?

BTW, the fuel filter is brand new.

I guess this topic was sort-of addressed in an October thread about a fuel pump and a throttle position sensor.
Any new news?
Has the problem been resolved?
I was wondering if a fuel system cleaner might help in some way.
I know, it's a long shot.

I don't have an answer but my Cherokee does it also, except mine doesn't do it unless it's below 1/4 tank.
