I had a similar problem. In my 1966 Mustang gas tank, the fuel pick-up was on a "float." My float developed a hole, filled with gasoline, and sank to the bottom of the tank, therefore, the gauge always read empty, but the car ran well. All the other gauges of course worked correctly. The repair was a relatively simple soldering job (after removing the float from the tank), but if that is indeed the problem, ensure all the gasoline is drained from the float before beginning the soldering job.

It is ok for your gauge to go to 1/4 when off. It is even some what normal. The gauge is going to its neutral position. Keep in mind it is also comon for the sending unit to fail in this year / make of vehicle.
I hope this helps.
