I had to have the fuel pump/ sending unit on my 2001 Aero Wagon replaced because it was causing the gauge to go dead below 1/8 tank. I think you most likely have a faulty unit also - it is fairly common in all makes of cars. It is very easy to remove and test - why don't you ask your dealer to check it out? They can look at the wires there at the same time, and test the gage operation. They may have to replace the pump as well as the sending unit - I was told they are not available seperately from Saab.
