The gas gauge for the front tank on my 1992 F150 is stuck past full


You probably have a ground wire not making contact to ground on the front tank sending unit. OR the sending unit itself inside the tank is faulty. Either way, when a gas guage goes to full all the time (empty or full), this indicates that NO ground is available for the sending unit.

When my fuel tank is full the guage registers empty


Could be a problem with the gauge in the instrument cluster, or the wiring that goes back to the tank, or the sending unit in the tank.
The sending unit has a float much like your toilet which could stick or fail to move.

Gas guage is not working


If there is gas in the tank and it is not registering correctly, then the sending unit or power to sending unit is bad.
