Gas bars disappear despite showing ample gas range remaining

Hi all,

I have a 2013 Volt Premium with 48k miles. Yesterday, I was running in charge sustaining mode (i.e. depleted battery) and I noticed the gas bars in the gas gauge disappear despite having over 100 miles remaining of gas. It was showing 3 gas bars or 1/4 tank when this happened. I will try to post a picture below. Once I got home and parked, I cut the car off, waited 10 seconds and started it back up and the bars were still gone. I plugged up and let it charge overnight. When I left in the morning the bars were back so all was good. Anyone else see this before?

Good thought on the hill idea, now that I think about it, I may have been coasting downhill when the bars disappeared. Still, I was on level ground in my garage when I restarted it and the bars were still gone. It wasn't until the next day and charging overnight that they came back. I'm probably going to have my 12v battery checked just for peace of mind. I've read on here that the computer can do little glitchy things when the 12v is nearing end of life.
