It sounds like a short in the wiring to me, by the description. I would check the wires just as dragon mentions too.

Mine reads full for about 50-55mi, then 1/2 tank at about 100-110mi, then lines up with the red empty mark at about 145-150mi. and is ready to start missing at any second and be put on reserve...
Rev. 8-17-08... Got 115 mi to exact 1/2 tank reading today, the best since I installed the 110 tire...
Have a good one ...Old Dog...

|niterider||It is more likely the wire that comes from the sending unit. It may have a bare spot on the wire that sometimes grounds and keeps it from working right. When ever the wire is not grounding (shorting) to the frame it works just momentarily. Or the wire is somehow broken in two and sometimes it connects and the guage works for a bit.|

|dragon159||Mine never worked from day 1 ... but mine always read empty. I was able to fix it by soldering together the broken connection inside the sending unit. My guess is yours is shorted somewhere or the float arm is stuck. Start by unplugging the sending unit at the back of the tank, if the guage goes to E then the problem is in the sending unit, if it doesn't move it's in the wiring or guage itself.|

No known issues with the fuel sensor.
It's not like the stator/RR, or the "coffee grinder" noise, or the ACCTS.
