I'm having fuel gauge issues too but I'm unable to look at any of the troubleshooting links. It opens for a second then it redirect to a error page.

Also take a look at your gas tank for damage along the sides. A bowed in or dented side could be holding the float arm up. I found that on my 84 CJ7 plastic tank, the front is bowed in just enough to keep the float arm from going all the way up so my gauge never reads above 3/4.
