They get gumed up(more so if they have sat for awhile) other than pulling them out of the tank. the easyest thing to do is add some antiguming fuel additive to your gas. it takes some time. It will losen them up.

Gas gage not working, gas tank seems full but it is not

You will need to remove the fuel tank from the truck and replace the fuel pump/fuel level sensor module that is inside the fuel tank. Use extreme caution when doing this as there is a real fire hazard.

I have a 1988 GMC Sierra 1500 thast wont stay running

Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. With tbi fuel injection, the fuel pressure is 9--13 psi. I have seen fuel injector spray pattern that looked good to me, but, the fuel pressure was half of what it should have been. 5 psi may show a good spray pattern, but, it won't start and run a v8. In my opinion.
Any applicable trouble codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check some codes yourself, if there are any.

Lite poped on for gas filled it and now wont stay going

You got a tank of bad gas. You need to drain the tank and refill with good gas. If that doesn't resolve issue you need to check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump gave up on you.
