Sounds like the float on the sending unit got stuck. This is a backyard tactic but... Try hitting the bottom of the gas tank with a hammer and see if it frees it up. Don't go and beat the hell out of it. A few decent whacks and it should come free. If not you'll need to have the fuel pump/sending unit replaced.

Fuel gauge stuck on half full


I can tell you almost for certain your fuel level sending unit is bad, I have been able to fix them though. It requires removing the gas tank and then the fuel pump. You can if your inclined, bend the brushes on the small circuit board over more so they will make better contact on to it. Other wise its a new fuel pump assembly, check all plugs and wiring by unpluging and repluging them to insure no bad connect. It is possible it could be the guage itself, but in thirty years of fixing cars never had a bad guage

When empty fuel gage show full, I put 2 gallons of gas and it show 1/2 full


If your lucky, it's the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. If your not lucky, it's the sending unit in the gas tank and that's expensive.
