Default CEL P0463 fix?

I did a quick search and didn't find a good solution for this problem. I recently purchased my truck and every time it gets down to 1/8th a tank and the low fuel light comes on the fuel gauge drops to nothing and the CEL comes on and code P0463 gets set.

After filling the tank up, the light goes out after about two days of driving and the code clears from the computer. Any ideas on how to keep this from happening, other than the obvious fill the truck up before the idiot light comes on.

Wondering if I need a new fuel level sensor.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would start at a new fuel level sending unit. Being that the code says it is seeing a problem at that unit its just kinda process of elimination from that point on.

Let us know how it turns out.

Oh and when you do decide to drop the tank to get to the sending unit be very careful. There is a lot of crap attatched to gas tanks usually that you cant see that are a real pain in the butt if something goes wrong.
