Is it actually reading full or has the needle gone past the full mark and resting on the stop if it has one?

It has gone past the full mark but there is no stop. The other tank is working fine. The gauge is near empty where it is suppose to be.

That is indicating an open circuit for that sender circuit, it could be the sender itself or the switching valve not fully switching over to that tank, i have seen this happen.
