Fuel gauge not working on RAV4

We have a 1999 Toyota RAV 4 and the fuel gauge has stopped working. The gauge will generally stay at the full or near-full mark. Sometimes it will drop below that, but I cannot trust it. The fuel light still works. Vehicle has only 47K miles. Any clues as to where the problem might be?
