Could be the level sensor ( float ) in the tank.. or bad MFD. I'd go for the Float first.. you can disconnect it to test the MF. its just a resistor

Fuel level sensor is favorite. The instrument cluster rarely fails on the fuel guage side. The cluster tends to fail alltogether so I would agree with the level sensor:thumbsup:

where can i find the tank under the sit? or by the trunk?
If you lok at the back of the trunk there is a liner there. Remove the liner and you will see you fuel tank. I believe the level sensor is mounted right there in plain view on the top of the tank...ITs hard to remember because I haven't been in there in a while...
