Fuel guage goes to empty when boat placed in gear

by Gerry

I have a 16' Lund Pike that i adapted a fuel sending unit to fit in a portable tank. I installed a fuel guage in the console last year that works perfectly until i shift the boat into gear... Then it returns to empty... Take it out of gear? Reads fine... Put it in gear... Reads empty

Ive gone over pretty much everything i can think of... And im blank
The shifter has a switch that will not allow the boat to start if its in gear... Any chance its the culprit?
