SOURCE: fuel level gauge
some of this vehicles have a computer system, that will allow you to diagnose the fuel gage with an aftermarket sacan tool,
than most of auto repairs have, but i will recomend you to check also the conector by the fuel pump and make sure there is not any corosion or melting circuit inside the conector,
what the scan tool does is triger your gage and that way you will know if you have a bad gage.

Your code is PO462. Isuzus made 99-01 with bad fuel level sensors as well as bad fuel pumps located inside your gas tank. You can just replace the sensor but i advice you to replace the whole "fuel pump assembly" to prevent another problem. At a shop this is a costly job they will charge 500$. But if you have faith you can do it your self..it is fairly easy to replace if you have a friend to help even better. but will need to erase the code before or after doing the job to prevent the same symptoms. Buy a "Fuel pump Assembly kit" with and a gasket (around190$).Remember always do a job carefully to prevent braking anything. Raise your car, locate your gas tank unbolt the 4 bolts holding it, disconnect any sensors, there should be 2 other bolts holding the tank once down, you can see the assembly with hoses disconnect too. and pull the assembly out itwill be tight, now replace with new gasket and assembly kit press down firmly till it locks in. now connect everything the way you took out. Its actually easy...here is a pic of the whole assembly kit.....GOOD LUCK

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.
