[Spridgets] Fuel guage question

Hi all! Just took the garage queen out for a drive this weekend . . . ('71 Midget)
First thing first: this car is ridiculous. About 500 miles on a +20 1275 with APT (modified) head, intake and exhaust manifolds; 286 cam, balanced, blah blah blah. To me, this car feels like like a little race car - it just gets up and goes! Prtty much nothing below 3K - but 3K to 5.5K (about as high as I've taken it yet), it just feels like an itsy-bitsy drag racer. Crazy. Can't help but get my foot into it at pretty much every opportunity. It also has Frontline suspension front and rear, which I am not enjoying nearly so much.
Second thing: after driving it around for a bit, I noticed the fuel guage cycling from full to empty. (tank was full at the time). My first guess is that the voltage stabiliser is "sticky". Any other guesses? Is there a recommended tweak, or should I just dive in with a replacement?
Your (always helpful) comments and insight are greatly appreciated!
