    Hi!

    When I fill up the gastank to max, the gauge move up slowly, but stuck by ~3/4 .
    Whats the reason of the problem? The fuel level sensor, or the gauge cluster?

    Sounds like the sending unit.
    Does the gauge move erratically or does it act normal as you drive?

    If you ground the fuel sending unit wire, does the fuel gauge needle now move to full?

    Yes, if you ground the wire, the gauge needle should move to full.
