fuel guage or sender unit inop?

Hello I have a question on a fuel quanity indicator problem.
First let me say it is a 86 chevy nova 1.6 engine with 180000 miles.Here is what happens if you fill tank needle reads emty till the tank is about half full.I have been using the trip meter as a guide.I get 280 miles from a tank of gas and at 140 it starts showing half and works ok from then on.The low fuel light works like it should.I was wondering if ot might just be a bad ground or something.

It could be. Check it at the sender and see if it's rotten or loose.

Barring that, probably a bad sender in the tank.
