Thanks for the info. The gauge did read some fuel in the tank, barely, and I am 100% positive of the levels that were in the tank. This is good info though, should I ever need to test the gauge.
As for my "shifty neighbor"???? I could not agree with you more. Kind of ironic how my gas disappears in the same week that I confront my neighbor ey?
Have a good week.

I wonder if your fuel gauge has a problem. You said it is completely empty on the gauge and the gauge gets its signal from a ground connection which is regulated through a coil on the sending unit. To test your gauge disconnect the signal wire from the sending unit and turn your ignition on. Your gauge should be hard on empty or full, now connect the signal wire directly to a ground and the gauge should read the other way, this test confirms that your gauge is OK and you might have a problem with your sending unit.If the gauge does not perform the way I discribed you may have a problem with the connections on ether the gauge or the sending unit.
Sorry to be so long winded but I find it hard to believe some was able to completely drain your tank and not leave a little showing on your gauge.
Anyways stealing someones gas is pretty low in the boating world.
Hope you get over this bump and have a great season.
