2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Question: Why is my gas gage and numbers drop even after a fill up

Hi the past several weeks my gas gage and digits to empty drop and then go back up even after filling up. The check engine light also came on today with the code showing fuel level sensor, Is this sensor inside the gas tank or outside? I have read of many of these cars having the same problem, is Hyundai issuing a recall? Is this an expensive repair? Thank you in advance

    It is in the gas tank on the fuel pump module, so the fuel pump will have to be removed. It is under the second seat under carpet, will not have to drop the tank.
