Fuel gauge issue

My fuel gauge reads past full all the time. I haven't dug into the problem yet, any pointers of where to most likely look to first would be much appreciated. 92 GT, 5 Spd.

The float might be stuck or broke in the tank would be my guess or some other electrical problem

I've seen one do that with a loose connection on the tank....crawl under there and wiggle the hell out of it and see if that helps. If it doesn't, I would agree with everyone else with it being a broken float/level sending unit...

Re: Fuel gauge issue

If all of your other gauges in the panel are ok, then it is in the fuel sending unit.
If not then it may be the regulator on the back of the gauge panel.

Thank you for all the input, once it cools down a little I will tear into this.
