I have the same problem. The fuel gauge shows full all the time. I was told by the dealer that the sensor in the fuel tank would need to be replaced. Cost of about $600...not worth it. Now I just set the trip odometer to zero when I fill the tank and approximate the mileage. I did find that at some point as the fuel level goes down, the gauge will start move irratically when the ignition is on but before starting the engine.
On a side note, I did see someone comment on a different site regarding Silhouette problems, that the wiring under the driver's seat can become corroded and can cause stalling, hard starting and of all things.... erratic fuel gauge issues. My plan is to check the wiring under the driver's seat for any connection problems or obvious corrosion. May get lucky and fix the problem....probably not.
