Inside your fuel tank is a float that sits on top of the fuel inside your tank that tells the car how much fuel you got in the tank. sometimes when let the fuel run low the float get stuck to the side of the fuel tank. either try filling it up to the brim or get a friend to help you, stand either side of the car and rock it side to side. this may disoldge it.
if that dont work you may have to look into replacing the sensor.
