About halfway through the season, my gas gauge started indicating incredible fuel usage; on the order of 1/4 tank in 15 minutes at a constant speed of 25mph. When I filled the tank (reading a quarter full), I could only put as few gallons in before it overflowed, so I believe the problem is electrical. I shorted out he sending unit and the gauge pegged, so it's not the gauge.
Has anyone else had this problem? I would hope it is a warranty item.

Phecksel, Thanks. I called my dealer and they are researching whether it is covered under the warranty.
