i vote that you get an aftermarket one, cuz if the sending unit didnt fix it, it's most likely the guage.

Take the wire that plugs into the sending unit and hook it straight to the pos battery post. If the gauge does not peg to the right it is a faulty gauge or wiring.

Actually you are supposed to ground the wire, not apply voltage.

Hope that it's the gauge and not the wiring. It won't be fun to track down.
