Flashing Petrol light

Hi Guys,
My petrol light started to flash last night, but not come on properly. I was just under half a tank when this happened, but when starting her up today the light was normal - off.
The light will soon come on properly as I will be low on fuel soon, but just wondered what the smeg is going on here?!?!?!
The last few days I have had the Odometer light flashing, but that was due to a problem on the alarm (Wouldn't set even though all the doors boot etc were shut properly - had me really paranoid for a few days)
I'm guessing that the issue is due to the petrol sensor playing up, but the needle went to the right level (Back up to where it was when I shut her off) so not that sure.

I think when the gauge powers up it does a self test, if it finds a problem then it flashes the light ... doesn't help you I know ...
