fuel gauge acting up.

Oddest thing has starting to happen to my fuel gauge.
I run the tank down like I normally do, down to the 1/4 - E stop at the gas station, fill it all the way up until the pump stops. I get in the car, turn it on and look at the gauge and it is still reading empty. So I'm looking at it confused, turn the car off, wait a few mins, turn it back on, and it shows that I've got a full tank of gas. It just bugs me I don't know if I should worry about it, or should I try to fix it. So far it's done it with the last two tanks that I've filled up. Any ideas on what's wrong?

the only thing my car has evcer done like that was recently i filled up drove her home for the night, got up at 9 for my early class at 11, went to my car at like 10:45 to drive over there and my light came o\n, i thought i had filled it up, my mileage was reset so i decided i had... parked and turned it off waited a minute turned ti back on and it was still on E, then when I came back from class it was working fine and has since then.

ford said they couldn't fix it because they dont know whats wrong.
