There could be two problems here:
1. That buoy floating tank is not working properly
2. That the electrical system that fails to submit the dashboard.
Review this information:

Page 4 - Voltimeter/Tachometer/Fuel Gauge/Low Fuel Inoperative
Page 10 - Specifications

Fuel Tank and Gauge & Sensor Units Sending (Page 93 and next)
Good luck... and remember rated this help.

Well, theres a sending unit/float in the tank that sends a signal thru
wires to your instrument cluster's fuel gauge. You should have an auto
electric repairperson determine where your problem lies. It's not often
the needle's just 'stuck' to where you could dislodge it. More often,
it's pegged overfull or underempty-signaling a shorted component
upstream of the gauge.
Similar problem and found the solution:
In the back of the gauge, where the 2 coils are located, there are very tiny copper wires which connect all the resistors/diodes. they each travel from within the coil and are soldered to 3 out of the 4 mounting pins. if any of these wires are shorting out or disconnected, the gauge will malfunction.
- take the gauge and flip upside down
- temp gauge has 1 resistor (blue) and 1 diode (copper)
- fuel gauge has 2 resistors, no diodes
- 1 wire should be attached to bottom mounting pin (letter E for EMPTY)
- 1 wire should be attached to pin holding both resistors (half tank)
- 1 wire should be attached to the stand-alone ground pin (no mounting bracket)
Hope that helps!

SOURCE: Fuel gauge not working properly
The fuel sending unit is bad,it is in the tank,you may have to buy a fuel pump assy,to receive the sending unit ,if it is not available by itself.
