Fuel Gage Problem

If the fuel pump has ever been changed, it is very possible that when
re-installed, the hose and wires are interfering with the float travel.
When the fuel level gets low and the float reaches the bottom of the tank it
hits the hose and stops.

If this is your problem, you will need to enter the fuel tank from the
access port in the trunk and properly route the hose and wires.
