Yes there is a ground wire by the tank it does fail intermitantaly . What i did is found the plug to the tank under the van and ran a new ground to the sub frame and it is still working good .It also is the ground for the fuel pump in the gas tank and can save alot of money from a false diagnoisuse.

Do you mean fuel sender? If you do it's located in the fuel tank and is a complete unit (pump & sending unit).
On most American made cars you can test the sending unit by removing the wire attached to the sending unit at the tank and ground or touch to the tank itself. If the needle on the gauge goes to full, the sending unit is registering properly. If it does not move it could also indicate the wire has been severed between the tank and the guage.
On the fuel sending unit there may be one ground wire going into the tank. On the inside of the tank there are two ground wires. One goes to the sending unit, and the other to the fuel pump. One of those ground wires may be faulty.
