Have you checked the integrity of your wiring from your sender back to the gauge ?
Usually when the sender wire is off the gauge it goes straight to full when powered up

Apart from the positives of the spares maybe your tank is FULL !!! :D :D :D
Check the continuity of the sender power supply unit, common places to check is were the single wire lays in the boot well and were the terminal is joined to the wire
