Fuel Gauge

Just drove down to West Palm from Northwest Florida, and after topping off the tank the fuel gauge was stuck at 1/2 a tank. Only after a few miles did the gauge begin to move towards full and VERY slowly at that. Any ideas?

Just got back from West Palm, and the whole drive back the fuel gauge had the same behavior after topping off. I'm hoping to take it to the dealer and have a tech come with me to fill it up. Hopefully it'll repeat the behavior and I can get it fixed before the warranty expires. Suppose I could video the gauge after filling up as evidence.
