This could be one of several problems. The gauge itself could be faulty, a wiring issue between the sending unit and the gauge, or the sending unit in the fuel tank.

A gauge stuck on empty means no resistance...the sending unit is faulty or there is a something putting power / continuity into the sending unit circiut.
