Check the wiring at the tank, also, does the gauge test when you turn the key to start? (do the gas gauges do that trick??? I never paid attention......)

Since it is a Ram, it will be on E most of the time anyway, so it is probably better the way it is so you don't have to see how much gas you are actually using.

replace the sending unit, wiring and gauge. That should do it.

Thanks I just shot beer out my nose Silver.



To the OP
there was a recent thread on here recently by 95ram360 about the sending unit float hanging up on the side of the tank.
I'd try to check that first before replacing the whole unit....Cheaper too.
EDIT

His was stuck on full though..
