Gas Gauge

After filling my 1990 Chev Pickup the gauge works to about a quarter tank and then stays there. Any ideas will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Assuming that your sending unit is similiar to the old fords, I would guess that either the rod [on the sending unit] has gotten bent or [more likely] that the float is bad not letting the sending unit arm rise to the top. There is a slight possibility that you have a bad conection somewhere not letting the gauge get the full current.

Thanks. It is probably the float - I was hoping it might be something else
