gound it for a moment with the key on. If the wiring and guage are ok it will go up on the guage. Do not do this too long as it is a direct short and can damage the guage. Just until you see it move.

If you are in a rust belt state it is common for it to be either the ground on the tank on corrosion on the connection to the sender. Out here in CA it is nealy always the sender unless you live near the ocean.

Are you selling the left or right one, My 93 legacy reads 1/4 below actual on the fuel gauge, I have cleaned all the slider contacts, the thin wire is intact etc.
