I see we are of the same generation, if not of the same ilk....

I seem to recall that my 71 did the same thing. I think it is a poor 
ground to the gas gauge module. Try wiggling it. Even though the 
other two modules got good ground tabs in 69, I suspect that the 
gauge still gets its ground from the points on the ends of the two 
retaining springs that snap against the inside of the dash.
