Hi the gauge is controlled by a 9v power supply fitted to the dash control board this is were the speedo etc is fitted. if for any reason the power supply goes funny the fuel gauge will go wrong. there are 2 capacitors in the main board these keep the volts steady. when they were out you need to change them. as for losing info with the dash out this will not happen gauges work on power no memory same for speedo electronic milometer is a chip controlled so it store last miles. with power off for years. other problems that can make the fuel gauge go wrong is the cluster connection or the signal wires from the tank. a weak earth or a feed wire connection in the wire loom in the side of the wall that all the wiring goes to-to get to the back and the front of the car. hope this helps you with your problem
