Gas gauge moves to quarter tank after shutting off car

1997 gt....had car for about a month now and noticed the gas gauge moves to a quarter tank after I shut the car off. Its low on fuel so it climbs when I shut the car off, but goes to correct fuel level when I start the car up....
Anyone seen this before on their similar mustang? Thx

Hmm, nope. Put a full tank in and see if it drops to that level when you shut it off? As long as it reads correct when the car is on I wouldn't sweat it.

I'm pretty sure that it is normal for these cars, my temp gauge sits a little higher than the bottom when the car is off too.
