Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Try unhooking your battery for 30 seconds and reconnecting it. These have what is called a "slosh mode" and if the key is left on during fueling sometimes it will enter that mode and the gauge will stay at empty.

If that isnt it then I would suspect a bad fuel level sender. If you can get to the fuel pump wiring I can help you test that but I would start with unhooking the battery. Many times that is the fix.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for it. Thanks.
