Fuel guage on 2001 F150 Supercrew doesn't show full?

Hi All, I have a 2001 F150 Supercrew (5.4 V8, 2WD,Auto trans) and recently when we fill the gas tank, the fuel tank doesn't go all the way up to the "full" line. Don't know if this matters but: about a year 1/2 ago in a little town (while on vacation), we broke down and the trouble was the fuel pump. The little town did have a small auto-parts store, and luckily had the fuel pump we needed. Unfortunately we didn't have much as far as tools and we wound up tearing/cutting the filler hose and the vent line. The little auto store did not have the correct rubber filler & vent hoses for my truck and would take a few days get in stock. We changed out the entire fuel pump and sender unit, and were able to modify some rubber hoses for a new filler & vent line hose. Everything worked great for a year 1/2 but in the last few weeks we have noticed that when we fill the tank, the gas guage does not go all the way up to the "F" line to show full. With the price of gas, it is important to know exactly how much is really in the tank. Anyone had anything like this before? Is there something to check? Any ideas? Also, is there a battery in the ceiling console for the temperature and compass? Ours just stopped working yesterday. I aprreciate everyone's help

I don't know anything about your console, but as far as the fuel tank, assuming that it went to full after your repair, I'd say that either the float on the sending unit is getting stuck prior to getting to the top of the tank or there's something wrong with your gauge.
