Yeah the gauge would remain still. Its the only one that stays still all the time, even when the engine is off. Notice how even when you fill the tanks it moves so damn slowly? Check the connections behind the gauge cluster or the fuel sending unit. If it's the latter, you'll have to drop the tank to get to it. Shame, lots of cars have bolts under the rear seat that you can undo to get to the fuel tank/pump.
so its my sending unit? how much those cost? so took my dash apart took the cover off the the guages i moved the needle to full it stayed there until i started it then it just bottomed out to E (and the tank is full)
if the needle moved to empty when you removed it and replaced it. it could just be the needle. go ahead & remove the needle again, but when you replace it again, turn the key forward twice, to accessories, but don't start the car. Lightly place the fuel needle back on in the full position(assuming full tank) and make sure it isn't pressed in too tight. btw, make sure the gauges are all plugged in in the back before hand too.
I had to do this twice after I put custom gauges in. I had placed the needle to far in, and it couldn't move around.
