Based on your description, it sounds like there is a problem with the rheostat. If it shorts out at 1/2 tank, it will cause the fuse to blow. The rheostat is attached to a float. It works as a resister that allows different levels of power to make its way to the gauge. The more resistance, the lower the gauge. The less resistance, the higher the gauge.
