My fuel gage will read full when i fill up, but as i use fuel it wont get past the 1/2 mark. Is it gage or float in the tank? when i start to get low like 1 gal in tank then as i drive it will go to 1/4 back to 1/2

probably not all that difficult to fix it you have patience. The needle going way past full is an indication of a short before the sender unit or in the sender unit. Pull the power wire from the sender unit and see what the gauge does. IT should stay on the empty mark. IT may be just a fuel sender unit .
hello, it sounds like it has something to do with your fuel sending unit located inside your gas tank,on the sending unit it has a float arm that reads the fuel level, some times that float arm gets jammed and wont show your actual fuel level,to fix this with your gas tank at least half full use a rubber mallet or any other object that wont damage the tank and with your key in the start position with the car not running but reading your gages hit the gas tank not to hard but hard enough to lodge the float arm loose, if this is unsuccessful then it will probably be a bad fuel sender location sensor located on the actual fuel sender if that's the case you'll need a new fuel sender. good luck and please send me a update or any questions let me know.
It sounds like the fuel level sending unit located on the fuel pump is malfunctioning. The solution for this is to have it replaced. You can do this yourself but I wouldn't recommend it as the vehicle needs to be lifted and the fuel tank needs to be dropped out. This can be preformed for about 100-150 in most shops.
