Check the ground connections on the gauge cluster.

The sending unit at the gas tank is built like a coil. A sweeping hand moves along the coil as the fluid level goes up or down. The wires in the coil get worn to a point where the hand loses connection partway through the arc... That is why it might work at only certain gas levels...
The fix is to replace the sending unit in the tank.
