2003 Ford Explorer...daughter let it run out of gas and now that we filled it up, the gas hand remains at 1/8 tank. Any suggestions?

The sending unit for the gas gauge, which is part of the fuel pump assembly, in the gas tank must have been compromised/heated/burned up when she ran low on fuel. It might dislodge itself over time, worse case is you have to replace.
