Default gas gauge issue

ive noticed that my gauge is a little off... i fill it up it says full! wen the light comes on i kno i have 3 gallons left in tank. but my issue is that the needle barely moves for 175-200 miles. then it drops almost outta sight. anyone else expirence this??
if it moves and not supposed to... duct tape!!!
if it dont move and is supposed to... WD-40!!!

sounds like an issue with the guage itself *best case scenario* where its just getting stuck.

OR sounds like the floater in the tank is stuck *worst case*.

any way you look at it, when the light comes on, fill 'er up. then 1. you don't have to worry about it. and 2. most importantly, you never want to get it that low if it's not necessary. the fuel pump is cooled by the fuel and you won't be drudging up crud from the bottom of the tank.
