Maybe the contacts on the sender are messed up? It is a lot easier to pull the sending unit than the digimondash.

Solution... I sold the car and told the guy to trust ONLY the odometer and the analog temp guage

Try cleaning them up nice and shiny.
Humidity may be the culprit. Maybe some di-electric grease.
One of the digis I had in my '84 would act like that when it rained.

If so, it seems that the '85-'86 LCD digi-dashes had a problem with the solder joints for the fuel and temp gauges.
I fixed my temp gauge by pulling the cluster and holding a soldering iron on the temp sender pin on the back. I sold the car soon after, so I'm not sure how long the fix lasted.
Naturally, the correct solution would be to tear the cluster apart and properly solder the pins, but that would be quite a large job.
You might consider swapping an '87+ LED digi-dash in its place as they are much more reliable, but I don't know if the wiring would be the same or not.
