Could be several things. The float that measures the amount of fuel in the tank may be stuck. The float sensor may be bad and is not sending a signal to the gauge. The gauge itself could be bad.

Any of these are possibilities.

Fuel gauge reads empty


most fuel gauges will tell you you are empty when the is only 25 to 50 miles of fuel left. if it stops after filling with gas then you are ok, just don't let it go below a 1/4 tank. If it always reads empty the the problem is probably the float in the tank needs to be replaced. You will need to have a mechanic replace it. check several places for costs.

Fuel gauge registers empty after fill up


It sounds to me like you have a short in your wiring harness at you fuel tank. there is a plug on top of your fuel tank that controls you fuel pump and your sending unit that tells you how much fuel is in the tank. This plug can be a real p.i.a to get to on some vehicles, you may have to take the vehicle to a shop to fix it, if you are not mechanically inclined.
