Bad Gas Gauge or Sending Unit

My gas gauge jumps, needle flickers almost 1/2" all the while the ignition is on. Filled up gas tank and the gas gauge moved to full but still keeps jumping. Any ideas if this is a bad gas gauge or sending unit? Or do I just need to do the old trial and error thing?

I'd like to strip out all the wires and run new and bare minimum to make it run. For something as simple as this buggie it has a lot of wires on it.
And yes a lot of mild corrosion on everything so it could be a ground issue.
I'll get a new volt meter and start checking stuffs.

Cleaned the contacts on the sending unit and it's almost fixed. Lol
Still jumps a bit but hey I got a gas gauge. Club Car factory at that.
