All longwise mounted large fuel tank vehicles I have had had an issue with fuel gauge accuracy like y'all are describing. IF you park 'em uphill or down hill they read wrong since fuel runs to end of tank. I think if they scaled it to let you get it really low you'd run too much of a risk of running out on hilly drives and such.
I have F350 and heavy chassis F450. 350 is long next to frame mount tank and 450 is aft of rear axle and is a more cube like tank. 450 gauge lets you utilize more of the capacity to get to empty.
