It sounds like the level sensor has gone out. Here is a video that will show you how to replace it:
I was trying to point out is while I cannot get the gauge to go below the I can add gas and watch the needle go up to full. So while it is stuck trying to go below a half tank I can add gas and get the needle to go up. I am not stalling. The car runs good. Hope this helps. Thank you, Ed"

Sounds like the float for the fuel gauge is hanging up inside the tank. If your gauges normally go all the way down when you turn the ignition switch off, and that happens with the fuel gauge, you know that is okay and the problem has to be in the tank. If your gauges stay right where they were when you turn the ignition switch off, you will have to unplug the connector at the pump assembly. That should make the gauge go down when you turn the ignition switch back on.
Mechanics also have the ability to run all the gauges all the way up and all the way down with their scanners to test if they are functioning properly.
I have an idea your engine stalls once the gas tank becomes half empty. If that is right, suspect a dry-rotted rubber hose on the pump assembly. That allows it to draw up air instead of gas.
You can get to the pump by removing an access cover under the rear seat cushion. There's two clips at the front of the cushion.
Please let me know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.
