did you make sure you are getting a good ground through the connector when in the car? thats a common problem and any resistance (corrosion) will make the gauge read off

X2 on making sure you have a good ground. If you don't then the gauge could be off because of it.

scratch some insulation off the tank side of the connector and get a resistance measurement to a good ground point, should be low and stable( not moving around when you jiggle the connector)
