Any resolution to your problem Tom. I have a 2014 1500 5.7 and my fuel Gauge is doing the same thing. At 1st it was just the gas cap sensor that made the check engine light go on and off constantly. Now unless my tank is completely topped off the gage reads below empty and I get a "fuel sensor fail" on my messages. How is it failing if it reads a full tank but anything below full it reads empty... I'm thinking maybe my float is stuck?!?! Idk

Thanks for the reply, I'm told it's the float on top of my tank. To get to it you need to take the body off!,,. So for now I just keep it full, I also had a bad leak on the back window so I had to seal it with silicone , my is a 2014 1500 crew cab, last one I'm going to buy , iv had three in 9 years but no more.
