You'll most likely need a new sending unit assembly because you may not be able to purchase the float by itself. How did you determine the float needs to be replaced?

Why does the fuel gauge not work on a 1999 Chevrolet blazer?

If the fuel gauge isn't working on a 1999 Chevrolet Blazer it could possibly be because the float is stuck in the fuel tank. I had this problem when I got my 99 blazer, the float and sensor for the fuel gauge is on the fuel pump which is in the fuel tank to keep it temperature regulated. I had to replace my fuel pump, which ended up going bad on me, and after it was replaced the gauge works just fine.

How do you fix the gas gauge on a Ford Explorer?

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

The fuel pump is located in the gas tank. You have to remove the fuel tank from the vehicle. The fuel pump is attached to the fuel gauge float assembly.
