Does anyone else see this or is it just me.When my tank shows empty,needle in the orange, I go to fill the tank and it takes 17 to 18 gallons,That means there is still around two gallons of gas still in the tank but yet it shows empty? Am i crazy or is this normal on jeep?

I know when my 97 XJ gets well into the red and I put around 11 or 12 gallons my gas gauge reads a little over 3/4 full.
