It's probably still the sending unit.(VERY common with GM vehicles) Where did you get the one you put in a year and a half ago? the EVAP code is probably the vent valve or charcoal canister but it could be the gas cap(it's almost never the cap though).

sending unit is a GM part

It could be a pinched wire shorting out the wire to the cluster? It could be the cluster itself. I've replace A LOT of them over the years. 1999-2006 where just bad clusters. Enough GM had a recall on them (but I think it has to be under 80 or 100,000 miles)
