I have a 15' whaler with a built-in 12 gal tank. The gas gauge isn't working. How can I tell if the problem is with the gauge or the sending device?

Or wiring.

Put an ohm meter on the sender empty and
full at the sender and at the guage. If it
changes at the guage, it's the guage, else
if it changes at the sender, it's the wiring,
else if it doesn't change at the sender, it's
the sender.

I believe that these senders typically have an ohm range of 33-250 ohms, with 250 ohms empty and 33 ohms full. Don
