Default Fuel Gauge Stuck on Full

Fuel Gauge is completely stuck on full. Ran a full tank through and no change. Any suggestions before I start digging in?

Thanks!

Do you know why they call it Monday?

My wife's Ford Fiesta's gas guage also stuck, I added Marvel Mystery Oil to the gas the gauge started working again must have freed the float.

The transmission exploded shortly after but I doubt the MMO had anything to do with that.

If I had the choice, I prefer to have a transmission ion working order than a fuel gauge.

Unfortunately with the Ford Fiesta you don't have a choice this is the car I wrote about a while ago that the transmission would grenade every 25000 miles.

But the fuel gauge works good.
