Fuel gauge inaccurate

(2003 Ford Taurus)
in Lambertville, MI on March 17, 2013
Ran out of fuel today as idiot light didn't come on until 12miles prior. Added 1.5 gallons of gas, started car and gauge now showed almost 1/4 tank. Possibly related to occasional "shut-down" of vehicle at traffic light? Is this possibly an electrical issue? Please advise.
