i suspect a broken wire between guage and sender unit in tank, but the sending unit could be bad,find the wire to the float guage in the tank and disconnect it, if fuel level does not change then then touch the wire to a ground, if the guage changes then the wire is ok and the unit is bad, if it does not change check wiring and guage for faults.

According to what I read, test the gauge first. Hook power to where the white wire attaches. Hook a ground to the black wire connector. The gauge should rise to full. (May take a while). When on full, the tan wire connector to same ground. It should go to empty. If both work, gauge is good. To test sender, in the empty position, your ohm meter should read 0-2. 1/2 tank should read about 40, and full should read 84-88 ohms.

The floater may be stuck in the gas tank. Use a fuel cleaner in the next few fill ups and that should break it loose. If not then the float will need to be replaced.
