Mine hasn't worked right since the day I bought it. Dealer is aware of the issue but I just deal with it.

its easy to fix remove 4 screws undo fuel line, unplug wire remove sending unit from tank take a little sand paper to the thing remove the float first and clean up the surface lightly and reasemble and don't tighten the screws to tight. as you will strip it. mine didn't work from day one and now it works fine maybe took 45 min to do.

if your getting gas around and under instrument pod and the tank was full it is probably from the overflow tube mine did it once when overfilled tank and was riding on a hillside and my 06 500 fuel gauge did not work from day one and had to have replaced but have since traded the 06 for a07 500 manual just like my 06 but 07 model like much better than the 06

Fuel up there is from the overflow as stated above. There is no fuel at the guage, it uses a sending unit...
