Erratic Fuel Gauge Operation on Chevrolet Suburban 1500

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 gage not reading correctly, then stopped working completely and low fuel light on. May work on occasion for 30 sec then goes off again. use my trip counter to know amount of fuel in tank
reads erratic, will be at like 1/4 tank showing, then after driving for a bit, go up to 3/4, etc.
fuel guage not reading correctly; does not even stay within the scale of the dashboard guage, but spins around through 360 degrees! Amusing to watch, but a pain in the a-- to drive with.
Gas gauge stopped working then would work off and on then just stopped
I will go from range 60 miles, to 25, to low level, then out of gas in approximately 10 minutes if my truck had been parked on an incline

Hasn't worked right for 30,000 Miles. Can't trust it below 1/4 tank.
