Ford have a gauge sender in the tank that operates by a resistance through the fuel. less fuel more resistance lower reading. I would check for voltage at the tank unit and it is more than likely the fault will be found in the sender unit

Fuel gauge doesn't register correctly

The fuel gauge sending unit is in the fuel tank in a module along with the fuel pump, and float guage. It sends an electronic signal to the fuel guage on your dash. When it becomes worn or the float may even have a leak in it, the unit sends incorrect info to your guage. The solution is to empty your fuel tank, drop it from the vehicle, remove and replace the entire module.
