My gas gauge is lowering very quickly after I get gas. It went from 99 miles to 82 miles and I actually only drove about 2 miles.
Do you

The #1 reason for this to happen is a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor, I would purchase a new unit (Motorcraft) and install it. Also, check the air filter as well and replace it. Here is a guide to help you with the repair and instructions in the images below to help you with your particular car:

Don't try to clean the sensor because once it gets to this point cleaning will not help. You should also check the air in the tires.

Check out the images (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
