Default Fuel Gauge showing above full all the time

Looking through other forums and all I could find is folks bickering about this similar issue rather than giving some suggestions on what it can or might be. I have a 03' Ranger Edge 4.0l that I put gas in 3 days ago, drove it over 100 miles and the gauge has not dropped at all. The gauge shows slightly above full which is usual after filling it up. What is not usual is driving well over 100 miles and having no change in the gauge. Any ideas on what this could be? I replaced the Fuel Pump, Sending Unit, Float, Fuel Pressure Regulator and Fuel Strainer about 2 years ago when the pump went out. All other gauges in the cluster are working fine. Truck is running fine and there are no codes being thrown. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

you found the secret to awesome gas mileage!!! You must be getting 100MPG right now! okay im kidding. Stuck gauge? Could always just check the float too. Not real sure though, hopefully somebody else will chip in.
