126 fuel gauge question...

A few months ago , when my fuel gauge started vibrating like it was on fire -I followed the advice found on the forum , borrowed the monster 46mm Socket , pulled the fuel sending unit out and cleaned it out. The needle insanity vanished immediately... Great.
However - the gauge has become quite inaccurate... It indicates empty when there is actually at least a quarter tank hiding in there.
(The low light indicator does function on the day)
- From what I've read before most gauge problems are attributed to the sending unit. Do you think mine is too ? or could it be that after fixing the sending unit ( is it fine, is it not ?)- this is a different problem. an actuall gauge malfunction ? how common is that ?
Much obliged.
