Chevy's are known for this problem, i just recently had the same problem and what you need to do is replace the fuel sending unit. My original problem had to do with my fuel pump not working and i wasn't really worried about the gauge but we figured since we had the tank down we might as well swap the sending unit and my gauge starting working. Good luck

93 1 ton Chevy truck the fuel gauge stopped working?

When the gas gauge stops working in a vehicle, the first thing to check is the fuse. This is an easy and inexpensive task and may end the problem right then and there. If that isn't the issue, there could be a lose or broken wire between the gauge and the battery, or the float could be stuck or need to be replaced. It is also possible that the voltage regulator is failing.
