fuel gauge and consumption

My 2003 V6 Auto seems to be using more gas than usual.
The fuel gauge goes from full to almost the 3/4 mark after one 28 mile trip.
The fuel gauge also seems to be sticking during the hot and cold weather.
Does anyone else have this problem?

Re: fuel gauge and consumption

Mine usually hits the 3/4 mark at about 50-75 miles depending on how I'm driving. I've made it to 100 on one occasion...but not very often. How many miles do you have and have you kept up general maintenance?
