Take it from me, it is with all of us. Tankface.

imho it's prolly to do with the fuel tank shape. When I fill mine up, it seems to take age's but not long enough to go down to half full, but when half full is reached the fuel needle drops like a stone.

TBH I don't bother too much about this the OB computer still show a pretty regular fuel consumption, or are you concered you tank is being dipped.
