Not as of yet on the scan however we were told there was a sensor that would need replacement that meant tank would need to be dropped?

Yes if you did have a bad fuel sending unit then yes you would have to drop the gas tank to replace it. First thing I would do is get the car scanned for codes. If you have any codes then let me know the exact code numbers not code descriptions. Also you need a multimeter to test the fuel sending unit. So what is the gas gauge doing?
