Fuel Gauge stuck on Full

In my 99 f550 7.3psd, the fuel gauge is stuck on Full always, wanted to know if this happened to anyone else? Just wanted to know if it was a gauge problem or a fuel float leve problem? Thanks!

Drop the tank, I guarantee the float is stuck in the recess for the cap. See it quite often. It would also be a good time to do the in-tank mods as well

Take a rubber mallet and pop the fuel tank from the underside a couple of times and at a couple of different places and see if that might help.
I have done that to vehicles with in-tank fuel pumps when the fuel pump is almost worn out and the little motor gets stuck sort of 'whompered jaw' and the little tap gets it going until you can fix it.

Good luck,
