SOURCE: Gas gauge reading is erratic.
Your sending unit is getting flaky - it's a known issue. You can repair it though, rather than buy a new sender.
Do not do this job with any more than a 1/4 tank of gas or you'll get a fuel bath in the trunk.
Here's a DIY procedure on how to do it - 99% of the time on these cars, when there's a gas gauge issue, it's the broken wire they show in the procedure. I was out of solder at the time I fixed mine, so I used barrel clamp connectors to crimp a jumper wire into place on the broken ends of the wire, and that fixed it permanently.
Here's the link:)
Instead of replacing the sender, fix the visibly broken wire and it'll fix the failure.

Usually if the gas gage does not work yes it is true it may be the sensor if it is electronicly controlled. the sncor will more than likley be in the tank. here is how to remove your gas tank.

It is a common problem. It is a faulty in tank sender. You can just replace the sending unit by removing tank.

The sulfur content in the fuel is contaminating the contacts of the sending unit.
Some people have had good luck with some fuel system cleaners solving this problem. The cheap stuff doesn't seem to do the job.
Not that GM isn't completely exonerated from fault but the gas stations don't do a very good job of watching what the stations sell.
