    The gas gauge float sensor in the gas tank has gone bad. I had this happen to my X a couple of years ago. I got a good used fuel pump gauge float sensor assembly off of E-bay for 25% of what Ford wanted for a new one. Ran my tank till it was almost empty. Dropped the gas tank. Changed out fuel pump assembly. Reinstalled tank, gauge has been working fine... Good Luck...:chug:

    The fuel level sending unit is built together with the fuel pump. The fuel pump by itself can be replaced in the assembly. You may have a loose connection where the wire plugs into the gauge sending unit on top of the tank. You will still need to drop the tank to check it.
