Gas Gauge Movement

My gas gauge moves around a LOT, is this a common problem? I did a search and could only find threads with peoples gas gauges not working. Mine works, but say I start it, it will say that it's almost empty, and then I get down the road and I'm at a 1/4th of a tank, then later I look again and it's almost at the red line again.

It's really annoying at times because I don't know how low I am Also, is there a way to test the "Low Gas" light to see if it works?

Ok, I wasn't sure, in the threads I searched a few people said their bulbs didn't work.
