Your fuel sender may have gone bad. Get a tester and stick it in the fuel gauge wire with the key on. Have someoen look at the fuel gauge. If it goes up then the sender is bad if there is no power going to the wire then the gauge is bad. The wire you need to check is eitehr the yellow/white or the pink/orange. One should blink when hit with a test light and the gauge should go up if you get the right one.
