There are two TSBs out for erratic fuel gauges. If it's throwing DTC codes P0546, P008A, P1450, P2196, crank no start - then you need TSB 11-9-3.

If you have horizontal lines on your message center and an erratic fuel gauge, you're looking at TSB 12-1-7.

That said, if you have neither of these and ran out of gas with 1/5 of a tank left, your dealer should be able to recalibrate your gauge. Should.
