replaced fuel pump - gas reading at 3/4 tank

only problem is i have next to no gas in the tank. what happened? i just removed the gas tank again and removed the pump, messed around with it and reinstalled it but its still reading 3/4 tank. the fuel pump itself works just fine but i wanna know why its reading that and how to fix it. need help quick guys please!

edit:

So just use the gauge backwards. You'll know that a "full tank" on the gauge, means you need gas!

Thats a strange issue you got going on.
