Hi..there..

If the fuel tank has sustained somesort of impact damage and been shifted out of line then this may have had a knock on effect with either the filler pipe to the tank itself aswell as maybe the tank guage/float inside maybe stuck or maybe the wiring harness to the tank sender unit is damaged...its hard to say without actually seeing the damage thats occurred on it...that being said you'd certainly need to have the tank inspected aswell as what i mentioned above to see what has to be done to solve the problems you have above...
