SOURCE: 99' blazer gas gauge eratic
I have the same problem on my 99 ZR2 Blazer. This is the rheostat in the gas tank. I bought my part in Ebay for $27. The only issue is that you have to drop the gas tank and pull the sending unit to install. Hope this helps, I hear from other message boards that it is a very common problem in these vehicles.

Gm has a real problem with fuel tank sending units. That is what is wrong. You need a fuel tank sending unit. You can only get them aftermarket with the whole fuel pump module, but you can buy them seperate if you buy it from the dealer.

The fuel gauge utilizes a voltage stabilizer located on the back of the instrument cluster. if it's faulty it could cause this problem. The other causes are a wire fault (short) between the gauge and the tank sending unit and the sending unit itself being corroded and stuck in the full position (the float assembly that is). One way to quickly isolate (and maybe eliminate) the problem is to get a used cluster from a wrecking yard and swap it out. If it works normally, there you go... if not you will need to access the tank sending unit (this usually, but not always, involves draining and dropping the tank to get to it. Some cars have an access panel in the body over the fuel tank for this purpose... look under the carpeting in the rear of the vehicle) Once you have access disconnect the power wire (usually red or with a red stripe), and with the key on, the gauge should drop to empty. If it doesn't, the problem is not the sending unit. Hope this helps...;-)

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.
