It sounds like the fuel sender is bad, but if you need to test, do you have a multimeter to do some testing?If you do our first step will be to fill the tank till the pump at the gas station turns off.

Then we will have to measure the resistance of the fuel sending unit since we will know that the tank is full we can compare the ohms reading of the sending unit versus what the value should be with a full tank.
