Check the ground wire from the tank to a point on the frame. Or the connector at the sending unit.

Good luck!

If you pull the wire to the sending unit and ground it, the guage should ping to full. When you take it off, it should go to empty. Don't do it for too long, but that is one check.

I agree though, check the ground.
