try a couple of big bottles of fuel system treatment/cleaner..

sometimes varnish can gum up the float and cause the sender to show either no fuel or beyond full..

if that dont work, then you might have a bad sender, but they usualy will show below ZERO fuel when they go bad, not the other way...

FUEL GAUGE

Try banging on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer. If the float on the sending unit is stuck, this just might free it up.
