Fuel Gauge/Range

Having just seen a posting about fuel gauges and ranges, I wonder if 
anyone can help me (Phil? ;-)....)
When I have one segment left to go on the fuel gauge (i.e. the one before 
it starts to flash) and about 80 miles fuel range, under hard acceleration 
my engine will start to miss. If I let the fuel range get down to about 40 
miles, and I subject the car to hard acceleration the the engine starts to 
cut out completely, just like its running out of fuel (which it is..)
Is there a way of reseting/calibrating my fuel gauge/range so that it is 
more accurate?
It also makes me wonder if there is something wrong with my fuel tank 
system or pipes, because I get the feeling its pulling air in from 
somewhere when the tank gets low on fuel.
