0460 Fuel Level Sensor

I have a recurring problem with the 0460 Fuel Level Sensor code on my 97 ST that is driving me nuts.

Reset the CEL light and its fine for two or three tank fulls, then the CEL pops back on: Mileage goes from normal Rover bad to really bad, black smoke out the exhaust, and truck just feels like its running rich.

Wiring checks out fine. I replaced the fuel pump and connectors a couple of years ago just to eliminate those as a possibility. New fuel filter. All preventive maintenance religiously performed on time.

Took it to the Rover mechanic twice, they are not sure either, and the costly diagnostic time keeps adding up.

I am hoping it is not a problem with the ECU...

Anyone have any ideas?
