I have a 1996 Mitsubishi Mirage. The gas gauge appears to work properly until the gauge reaches below half a tank. Basically it shows there is less gas than what there is. When the gauge is completely on E it appears there is still 2-3 gallons in the tank. I say this because when I fill it up on E it takes about 10.5 gallons however I have a 13 gallon tank. What would cause this problem? Fuel level sensor or Fuel sending unit or something else?

It will be the fuel level sensor,not calibrated right,some one may have bent it when they installed fuel pump.
