You may need to pull the sender and fix the connector on the top where the wire goes from the rheostat in the tank through the top and to the wire leading to the gauge. Also check the tank ground.

I don't know if I posted it or not, but after about 3 months or so of using that sender in my truck, the insulator on the top stud swelled up and came out of place from the ethanol fuel, grounding the wire and causing the gauge to read the same all the time. It was a cheap rubber insulator. I made a new one from a piece of fiber or bakelite I had laying around and its been fine since.
