You have an electrical issue at the fuel tank. It is possible a wire was pinched/broken on the fuel pump assembly. Also possible is the fuel pump harness was damaged or pinched when your fuel tank was removed and replaced. The fuel gauge dropping is generally an indication of that. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, perform checks on these components to properly diagnose your starting issue.
