Fuel gauge does not read how much gas i actually have. It could be on empty but it says its full

Goes to full then empty soon afterwards right after you start it up. Then it will slowly attempt to find the correct level as your driving.

turning on the key,the fuel gauge goes to full,back to empty,then back to full,an stays on full,is it the sender,an are there codes stored for this problem?
The fuel gage stays at Full, unless I am parked at a slant, then it goes down to empty. Even if there is gas in it.
Never know if i have gas on my car. Fuel gauge does not work. Gas light comes on right after i put gas into my car. Nothing has been done

Fuel gauge does not work. When car is in park it gives a rough estimate of gas in thee car. When car is in drive, the hand will always go straight to full. IF gas light comes on then the gas hand will go straight to empty.
Gauge doesn't read accurately
gas gauge isn't working

Ill put gas in my car and as soon as i stop at a light my gauge would go from full to empty an i cut my car off and the gauge would go back to full
GET IN CAR GAS GUAGE READS 3/4 TANG START DRIVING GOES TO FULL , COME TO A STOP CYCLE KEY AND GOES BACK TO 3/4 BUT WILL JUMP AND IS MAKING A RATCHETING SOUND COMMING FROM THE GUAGE
If tank is full, it doesn't float. Once it hits 3/4 it goes from full to empty the entire time it's running. Only reason I know when I'm low on gas is it'll drop all the way down long enough for gas light to come on. Not fixed yet
irradic fuel readings ongage,,,
fuel gauge goes to F then to E all the time
Gas guage remains at full until close to empty tank, when it drops down to the actual reading. When sitting at a stoplight or in stop and go traffic, guage may drop to empty until I move the car again, when it jumps back to full.
