When you turn on the key the speedo and gas gauge needles sweep, neutral light comes on but gas gauge shows empty, the tank is full.

I think you have two problems.
First a venting issue in the tank. Pull your dash and you will see a vent tube coming from the tank. Make sure the elbow is clear and allowing air to flow. Then track the hose to under the seat. There you will find a thing called a rollover valve. These malfunction all the time. Remove it and put a fuel filter in its place or just a connector to next the two tubes again.
The wost thing with this rollover valve is that your tank can implode from the negative pressure built up. I have seen this happen.

If you fuel gauge is not working right after this you need to check your fuel sending unit. It can be cleaned so post a follow up here for more on that.

Remove the chrome bezel around the speedo (3 allen head screws). Raise it up and check that the electrical connections are seated at the front. You will see them when you raise up the chrome panel.
Hope this helps.

Check resistance of fuel sensor,connector should be under seat at rear of tank. If open sensor may be bad.Check the connector for good contact.Check with a good dealer about problem ,most will give you some help if you buy your parts from them.
