You probiby have a hole in the floater that tells the gauge how much fuel is in the tank it fills nad sinks to the bottom once filled. You should take the offf and check it out!!

My 84 cutlass did the same thing and the problem ended up being the ground wire from the sending unit not being grounded properly.
