Sounds like a bad float or weak gauge.you can always use the miles trip to predict how much fuel you have left in cases like these the trip can be your best friend.have someone experienced change the float in the tank then if not float change gauge but like i said someone that knows what they are doing if not they can mess the entire dash up and short alot more than you would think out so try float or gauge if it has over 150k miles its probably the float.

98 oldmobile cutlass fuel gage will go to full when filled but as soon as it uses 1/4 of a tank it (the gage) drops and i dont know how much gas is in there


there is a fault with the sending unit in the fuel tank, if the gauge can move to full when you fill the tank it is good.
only way i know how to test the sending unit is to take it out of the fuel tank and hook a meter to the float wires, move the float manually and the meter will go to zero if the unit is bad

-5 outside, very little gas, car will not start, frozen gas line


This is a tough situation if you cannot get the vehicle indoors. That is the best course of action to unfreeze the lines. You can use an electric blanket or heating pad where practical but i would caution against any kind of open flame like a kerosene heater or even using a blow dryer.
It may not help right now but in the future if you know the temp is going to be low filling your fuel tank at least 1/2 and using a fuel line antifreeze is the best solution. In the absence of actual fuel line antifreeze, you can use 90% rubbing alcohol in small amounts (depending on fuel level but likely no more than 8oz for a full tank) to prevent freezing.
