Default Fuel gauge shows on empty

Just filled the tank to full but gauge shows almost empty and yellow warning light is still on.
2006 1.6 petrol.
Anyone know the most common cause to this?

Regards
Marcus

A "hello" before you post your first question wouldn't go amiss Maybe a fuse or wiring, maybe the sensor/needle in the tank.

Yes, Hello there
Thanks for the input, I have not checked fuses. You think the gauge could show almost empty with a blown fuse? I'll check the fuses.

All fuses were in working order so no problems there.

Reparked the car just now and the needle went to indicate full tank.
Hopefully the problem has gone away, time will tell.
Thanks

Seems the float was stuck at the low level so hopefully it should be OK now.
