Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
From what you have described here this sounds like the common fault with the gauge assembly itself.This was a common component that failed and caused this issue.Now that you have a new fuel level sensor this is causing the faulty gauge to read even more off then before.The older model European vehicles were common for this fault here with the gauge needing replaced.I would check and make sure the wiring is all found to be o.k. from the sender to the gauge and if this is o.k. then the gauge usually requires replacement.
