2001 gauge reads 1/4 when tank is empty

I changed the seal on the tank filler neck, now I run out of gas at 1/4 tank. Any idea how to "reset" the gauge?

If thats all you did it sounds like something,(part of the seal), fell in there and is sitting in the well under the float.

Very good possibility. Guess I have to drop the tank tomorrow to find out.
