Faulty Fuel Gauge

Good day

I have a 2013 GT86, I recently completed my engine swap (3SGE with a EMU Black stand alone management) I noticed my fuel gauge does not read accurate. After doing some research I replaced both sender units and I still have the same problem, the only way to check my fuel level is to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery for a few seconds and reconnect the battery.

has anyone have this kind of problem before?

thanks in advance

sorry I should have stated the following, so if I fill up the car the gauge would show the correct fuel level and when I drive for a while the needle wont drop and in order for the needle to drop I would need to remove the battery and reconnect again after a couple of seconds to show the correct fuel level.

Try posting in the “engine swap” section, someone most likely has run into the same issue.
