Default Gas Guage went crazy?

My gas guage has been fine, today I was under 1/4 tank so I went to fill up while the gas is $3... Well I filled it up and topped it off, went to the city to pick up my daughter ( 30 min ride ) while waiting for her to come out I look and the needle is on "E"...WTF? turned off the truck and restarted...nothing. So as we drive off it comes back up to 3/4 tank and thats it???? floats around a bit but never fully went to the "F"...whats going on with it and why? Havent had any issues with it till today after filling up,. What do i need to do to fix it or test it?

Sorry I don't have a fix for you, but I kinda have the same issue. Mine takes about 10-20 minutes to "register" that I added gas and it slowly climbs.

I wouldnt think mine is a float issue due to it was working perfectly, and I dont think they just crap out all the sudden like that? Lets see what other members have to say or if anyone knows how to fix it or test it/repair it?
