Is it the original gauge? The ohms should be 73 at empty, 10 ohms at full. My aftermarket gauge however, shows 81 ohms at empty, and 16 ohms at full. I had to bend the float wire on the sending unit to put the float at the bottom and get 81 ohms on a multimeter. I wasn't worried about where it was at when full. Never going to run out of gas with a full tank.
