The 1/4 drops on most turbo cars are simply because the MAF isn't there or working with the ECU to fill in the gaps with the float reading and/or the O2 sensors are gone as well. The smooth operation of the fuel gauge I believe is a combined calculation of the MAF and O2 readings.
it's better than the other way! trust me.. i ran out of gas with 1/4 of a tank left - the float got stock on something and wouldn't ever drop below - such a pain.
