Default My Cam drives a hundred times better when It's full of gas

Is there a reason for this? It might be all in my head but when I'm
getting low on gas the car drives like shit then I fill her up she's a
beautifully riding little piece of loving slab again.

sluggish acceleration, rough shifting and maybe even some more engine
noise. I'm thinking it might be because of deposits at the bottom of
the tank that get sucked in

It might be that your fuel pump is close to being shot. It is cooled
by the gasoline and as the level drops the pump, if worn, heats up and
doesn't pump as well. This causes the engine to lose power and can
cause downshifting and other bad things.
