Fuel Gauge And Fuel Computer

I have a 95 3.8L Sable Wagon with digital dash display.

Last night my fuel gauge started to go down very fast, way faster than I was consuming fuel. The fuel computer was also displaying a decrease in miles till empty -- about 5 times faster than usual.

FInally, the fuel gauge and fuel computer displayed 1 gallon left, but I actually filled the tank full. Still no change in the fuel computer/gauge display.

So the question is: how do I know whether it is the computer, the display, the sender, or what?

I hate to have to drop the fuel tank, since I just did this last year to have the fuel pump replaced. It cost me a pretty $400. But the guy who did it now says that he has no way to check the sender without pulling down the tank.

Any advice out there?
