When I got the car and cleaned the tank out, this piece broke and I didn't replace it... My fuel gauge doesn't work.. I ordered and received this and gonna stick it on soon but I am curious... Is this the ground for the sending unit and therefore required for the gauge to work? Does anyone have a pic of this installed in a car? Thanks

Yes, that is the gas tank ground strap. If a bad ground is your issue (easy to check by grounding the wire from the sending unit on the tank-and seeing the gauge to to F) this will likely solve it.
