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.

SOURCE: dual tank no fuel/1989 F250
The metal fuel line on top of my 89 Ranger fuel tank rusted out. What a pain. For all the trouble of dropping the tank and wrestling with the fuel assembly, definately put in new stuff, don't try to fix anything with jb weld like I did. It's a shame the body bolts are such a bear, or I'd say to try to remove the bed for a good look-see. After all was said and done, I cut a trouble door in my bed so I could replace the filler hose if I ever get one. Just don't do any cutting while the fuel tank is there, even with a saw or grinder, they all spark!

the fuel level sending unit has been incorporated into the fuel pump assembly.
the fuel pump is most likely your problem, these pumps dont like fuel additives so be careful.
most common problem with these fuel gauges is the sending unit, the sender contacts will errode over time fuel additives seem to speed the process.
replace the fuel pump assembly
hope this helps

Behind the air cleaner box, there are two relays. Over time they corrode and get stuck...change them out and see if that improves the situation.
