I assume the sending unit is bad. Just haven't had the time to replace it.
Let me know if the resistor fix helps your problem.
I have a 1997 Riviera with this same EXACT problem! Except mine works fine until I get down to 1/4 of a tank or lower, then it will slowly go back to full. It drives me crazy! Once I get lower on gas I never really know how much gas I have. I hope it'* not the sending unit, those are like $200 I've heard. :(
