Faulty Fuel Sender Unit. Sounds like the float isnt dropping all the way down, instead catching at a quarter full and sitting there. Therefore sending the wrong signal. You could probably replace it easy enough...

If your brave, move the rear seats, and you will see the fuel tank access, get in there and jiggle vigorously the FSU and try again...
