fuel problem

Having problems with my 06 gt I when I fill up my gas fudge is saying I'm full but when it gets down to half a tank it goes to empty and then after about 20 miles I run out I'm only getting around 140 miles per tank and its only taking about 10 gallons from bone dry but it says its full. Anyone help would be appreciated so I can cut down on the troubleshooting cost.

It seems to me that you have two separate issues here. A bad sensor and a tank that won't fill properly. I would check the fuel level sensor first, make sure it's working properly, and then I would try to figure out why you can fill more than 10 gal.

Gauge itself could be messing up, there are known gauge issues with our cars. When you say you "run out" car will shut off? Act like it runs out of gas? Or the gauge just says your out of gas?

As far as the full up goes, turn the gas nozzle upside down and see if it will fill up all the way.
