Screamintrashcan is on a distinguished road

I'd start by running a couple of tank fulls of premium in it, to see if the resistor cleans up. Guessing that your resistor or the arm that rides up and down on it has a corrosion problem, which is caused by corrosive ethanol in mid and low grade fuels. Every 10 tankfuls or so, I run premium, in my Dodges, and have never had a fuel gauge prob, and in my explorer, when the gauge starts to get screwy, a tankfull of premium clears it up for another couple of months. It works for me, maybe for you, as well.
