I have the t-shirt

Maybe one of you that knows about this can answer this. Why does the fuel gauge in every car I've owned creep to the half tank mark from full and then races to empty? I had 198 miles on the trip odometer at half a tank. Math would say I should get another 198 miles from the other half a tank. But at just under a quarter tank, I'm at 278 miles. I'll probably get a little over 300 when the fuel light comes on. Where's the other 50+ miles of gas that I got from first half a tank?
