Need advice!

I'm having some fuel issues with my 05 v6. It doesn't always let me completely fill it up, which I've read is a fairly common problem with these cars. About a month ago I filled it up and the gage stayed at E and said I had 18 miles to empty. Now everytime I fill it up I have to shut it off and restart it a few times for the fuel gage to go to full. Usually the day after I fill it up it will be on E saying "fuel level low, fatal data error." yesterday my check engine light came on and I took it to auto zone to get the code and it is the fuel sending unit which I'm told is a pretty pricey repair. The lady said it could also just be the fuel sensor, but she wasn't sure of it or where to get it. Has anyone has this problem, or have any advice on what I should do?

I've had the fill a little stop, fill stop, and it goes on, it's major pain the ***. Excuse my language, it's frustrating to say the least. Do you have a trust worthy mechanic in town? Usually they will diagnose the problem for free, or for maybe like $70-80.

I just found a tsb online for both problems. The one for the tank not filling calls for. New gas tank. The other calls for replacing both fuel sensors. Thanks tho. Hope that was able to help you out a little. If yours is still under warranty you can get it done for free. My warrantys up.
