Do you mean that the gauge registers as empty, even after the tank is filled? Probably the sending unit needs to be replaced (it's in the tank, likely partially attached to the fuel pump).

well # 1 the full gauge when empty is a sign that your fuel pump is bad and that needs to be replaced the part about spitting the gas back out is probrobly a clog between the fuel door and the tank itself or their might be a vapor lock door that might be stuck shut so fuel cant get in im not 100%sure about that but im 100%sure that the fuel guage is the fuel pump being dead.

SOURCE: Gas Gauge not working properly
First...how do you get 25 mpg...I get 21 or so!!!! Additives will never work on this. The price for the pump is $150-175 for an aftermarket unit.
I just did the tank job for the sender. Get an aftermarket pump/sender. DO NOT ORDER from RockAuto for this part...their listing is wrong. They send the gasket...which comes with the replacement. Replacing the unit is relatively easy:

you have to take the fuse box out. unhook the hot wire from the front of the fuse box.then there is a little black holder with which you can take a flat head screwdriver and lift the little peg in the middle of it which will then come out. then just pull the fuse box off to the side and u should be to the battery.hope this helps
