That should be the problem. The dent is preventing the sending unit float from going donw and this would cause inaccurate reading.
Your problem should not be the sending unit, located in fuel tank, but rather the dent in the tank. The dent is causing the float to be stuck at 1/4 tank when the tank is empty.
You would need to remove the fuel tank to see if it can be repaired.
