The sensor is worn out - it's covered in the gunk that normally accumulates in the tank so the sensor needle sometimes gets stuck or it no longer makes contact. You could clean it but the problem will return quickly.
Just replace the sensor.

What causes gas gauge to register incorrectly on a 2003 Buick rendezvous?

Common issue for Rendezvous is a faulty fuel sending unit, sometimes referred to as a fuel module (fuel pump, pump filter, float, sending unit, all sold together as a preassembled unit). Go to your local auto parts store. Most have a scanner/code reader that they can connect to your vehicle to download any fault codes.

Gas gauge is moving up to full when i give it gas

Sometimes those gages go bad, or it could be the float on your sending unit is bad, that is in the gas tank, I have an older model truck that can be on empty and I can put like 10 dollars in it and it will show like it has a full tank, and we know with gas prices these days that isn't much gas lol, but more than likely it's sounds like to me that your gauge is faulty.

When I put gas in my tank, I have to pump the peddle to get my 06 Buick Rendezvous to start! It only happens when I put gas in the tank? Any suggestions??

man you only puts fuel when you fuel tank is really empty and that cause the air to enter into the fuel circuit try next time to refill before it gets totally empty and lights up
your car will turn on without pedal trick

No, there is not a fuse for this. Unfortunately, you have a bad sending unit. In order to replace the sending unit you have to drop the gas tank. it more to get rid of all of that gas and it will be easier to put back up.
