Gas Gauge flutter on a 1946 Packard Clipper Limousine

While driving a 1946 Packard Clipper Limousine I noticed that the needle in the gas gauge moved around alot - a considerable, distracting flutter. Is this correct behavior for this car?

The wiring diagram shows a simple circuit. According to a recent post in this forum, the Tank Unit (sender) is a resistive model in which it changes resistance depending on level of fuel.

Is it normal for the float in the tank to move around a lot and cause the needle in the gas gauge dash unit to move a lot as a result?
