Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Oldsmobile Bravada

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Fuel gauge does not work do not know if I have gas or not
Fuel gauge started reading incorrectly. Did not want to make a costly repair since we'd just had the fuel pump replaced about 20,000 miles before hand. Just letting it go, I reset my mileage and keep track of my fuel consumption that way.
Fuel gauge does not show proper level of fuel. I have run out of gas twice since I bought the vehicle in 2010. I have not fixed it, I just keep track of my mileage, and once I have driven 220 miles, I know it is about time to fill up. My mechanic said it would be costly to replace.
haven't fixed it yet becuase I just found out the fuel pressure regulator has gone out and I thought it was the fuel pump. Next step is the new fuel pump to fix the fuel level sensor with is in connection with the sender in the fuel pump.
Car ran fine then fuel gage went to full motor sputtered for a second then died cranks like a new battery would but no fire or fuel to throttle body.when it does this all functions lock up won't go out of park nothing.but if the fuel gage drops back down to its act. Level it starts and runs for about 20 min.then does the same thing.
erratic fuel guage levels
Waited until fuel pump went out at 125,000 miles. Fuel guage works again after pump replacement.
not fixed yet. have 148+++ miles on car and reset gallons used every fill up.
When my truck is under 1/2 full, the fuel gage seems to have a mind of it's own, and never reads correctly.
