I never trust ANY gas gage, in your case, the Floater may be stuck somewhere.
just everytime you fill up, reset your odometer to zero.
thats what I do, and when I drove about 180 miles I just fill it up (usually arround 11 / 12 gal)

I agree, sounds like the float is jamed up... its not a hard fix, but it can be a pain in the but...

I agree, your floater is probably stuck and I also agree with resetting the trip on every fill up, it works better than a gas gauge.
