In my case which was just resolved in late September it was the fuel sending unit wires had looped themselves around the float arm and held the float in the Full position. The wires need to be tie-wrapped to the rheostat mounting plate. Easy fix.

The same problem on 2007 with v10. The float mechanism jarred loose from the pump and floating around in the tank.
