As my understanding is, the failure of the gauge is a result of the float in the tank getting a hole in it resulting in it filling full of gas and..well, not floating (grin). Pretty simple, drop the tank, remove the float, fix or replace the float and reinstall.

If you have replaced the fuel pump, float (the entire unit basically) and it still has the same problem, and Upon start-up it goes to past full and the goes down to past empty, it could be an electrical problem between the tank and the gauge. You needs to check your fuses.

The 1991 to 1994 models have a 15 amp fuse in location # 17 for the fuel gauge
