Yes it is all one unit, and yes that is what the problem is. don't use aftermarket parts, use OEM, (Delco Remy) they are much better quality.

Clogged Catalytic Converter. What happens is as you push down harder on the accelerator you force more gas into the system causing a slightly richer mixture and more exhaust flow is neccessary. The easiest way to look for a clogged cat is when it's dark out take it for a ride causing it perform it's problem look under the vehicle if the cat is literally glowing red hot you either have a clogged cat or an extremely rich fuel mixture.

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge not working
The switch that you use to change tanks is probably faulty - the switch supplies power for the sending unit in the tank, and to the transfer switch for the gas lines - use a meter to check it

Check online in other forums of this particular issue. Others may have had the same issue and have found answers through other sites online. Sound like a bad sending unit "fuel gauge sensor". Unfortunatly, it may be a requirement to remove the fuel tank to gain access to this fuel sensor. If you dont have the means to repair this problem you can always keep track by the mileage that you put on your vehicles tripometer. I know thats a pain but it wont cost you any money until you choose to have the repair done.Estimate your mpg's and the size of your fuel tank by the gallons, and multiply the two. Be sure to keep track and have enough fuel not to run out! Its always better to keep half a tank than an eighth of a tank!
