Any help..........

Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but when I bought mine it did a similar thing. I just filled the tank up a few times to max with the proper gas, and waalaa, the guage worked. The float was probably stuck with old gas turning to varnish around the post.

You might try Seafoam in the gas and drive the hell out of it. Creates a lot of smoke but if it's a bad gas issue it will clean it out pretty quick. Just don't do it near your neighbors or they will think your car is a clunker.
