Default crazy gas gauge

My car was reading just about empty yesterday and when I filled it up it only took about 8-9 gallons, and it holds about 13 right? This has happened been happening for a little while now, and wonder if it might be the sending unit? If so could I use one from an L? cause there are a few in my local junkyard. Thanks in advance.

Was it staying on empty or was it moving up and down the gauge? I have a simialr problem, but mine jumps around when its below half tank, it reads empty then jumps up to quarter tank then back down to empty then to a little above. It seems to happen when the outside temp is rather warm like 85+. I think its kinda common for MY99 and below to have this problem. Do a search in this forum for more info, I recently just posted a thread in here about this problem.
