Default strange fuel indicator

I noticed this strange phenomenon twice in my galant.

(after i came back from a week long vacation) the fuel indicator was upto around 3/4 of full, and then slowly went down to almost empty when i started it.

after a few days i left it idle for a few days, again when i went, it was up to the same point. again after starting it went down. wondering if something is warming up inside to cause the float to go up.....some kind of vapor lock?

used to have similar issue in ol honda city, leave the car with parking lights on and fuel guage used to raise by itself.

never bothered to check coz it used to return to normal as soon as engine is cranked.
