you might want to check the float on the fuel pump. It could have something blocking it from floating up all the way

This could be a malfunction or failure of the fuel sending unit, which is what measures the level of the gas tank. If it's not working properly, the gauge won't give you the right information. It seems like these failures are more common than the gauge itself. I'm not sure what it would cost if this is the problem.
