Fuel gauge sender

'89 3.6: Car ran out of fuel on a long steep incline. Still showing three bars. Is this a typical failure mode i.e. the gauge does not register falling levels due to wear?

Another member had this recently, three bars but no fuel, turned out to be an airlock due to the heat iirc.

Can’t remember who it was now, but a very recent issue.
