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.

Bad fuel level sensor. Unfortunately it is located inside the gas tank. Fairly common problem on GM's. Due to sulphur in fuel. Corrodes the sensor tabs. Expensive to have repalced and NOT a do-it-yourself project, unless you have dropped a tank before.

The most likely culprit is a faulty Fuel Level Sending Unit (sends fuel level from tank to dash gauge). It may be stuck, or beyond repair and in need of replacement. Dealing with electronics in your tank can be tricky and should be dealt with by a professional.
