does anyone know what usually plays up with these? When I fill up it goes to full but then goes down to empty when i still have a quarter to half tank left.
Thanks in advance

I never trust fuel gauges at the best of times

I calculate from fuel tank capacity measured from actual runs highway and town. eg km's per ltr

But my guess is the float sensor in the tank is partly full with fuel and losing buoyancy

Or the hinge it swings on is sticking due to a partly dislodged pin or rust.

If ya cant find anything obviously wrong with it probably best replace it .

The water in gasoline is rusting the sender's contacts.
As has been stated, replace unit and then always use ethanol treatment.
