I ran a ground wire from the Gas gauge to a good ground this helped .
I ran a ground wire to a good ground from my gas gauge but now it stays on empty. i think the wire i ran to the sending unit is to little i will run a bigger wire ? this is a 1948 GMC pickup i put a new sending unit in the gas tank.
converted it from 6Volts to 12 Volt. also put a 6volt resester in line from the ingination switch. to the gas gauge .

before replacing wire, check the voltage coming from the wire it should be 12 volt. Also is the sending unit a 6 volt unit or 12 volt. The resistor might be blown. If the gauge stay's on e, than you are not getting power to it.
