Hello, did you replace pump with sending unit as a module or just pump?

With sending unit

Thanks, what's the 8th character of the VIN? Also do you happen to have the part number of the pump you used?

Thanks, ***** ***** doubling checking the part numbers to make sure the module wasn't for a smaller tank which would explain how its showing empty but only taking 19 gallons to fill. That is the right part number so the only other explanation would be that the wrong module was put in the box by the manufacturer, which I have seen happen a few times.
