FUEL GAUGE DOESN'T WORK

2000 Chevrolet Blazer

I have a 2000 Blazer with around 80,000 miles, 4x4. Great vehicle but my fuel gauge went out quite a while ago. I haven't taken it in yet but have asked around about the issue. I was told it's not uncommon and can be difficult to fix. The gauge is usually on Full but will occasionally dive down to Empty and then goes back to full. Any ideas?

Thanks!

The fuel sending unit is bad. It's part of the fuel pump which is in the tank. Replacing the pump will solve the problem, however the pump is quite pricey. Around $350.00 and up.
