i noticed that last night it was the black and white wiring on the prins fitting guide saying that was a hall sensor,but it also said you can select a hall guage or a standard 0to 95 via the dash guage pressing once for standard guage and twice for hall on initial start up so should i just get a 0-95 one?

As it's cheaper, why not? That's probably what you have now rather than the Hall Effect one but as the resistance didn't change when you moved the needle, it's broke.

It might indicate sooner that its lower than the 0-95 if you didn't change settings, but no not really. You do need to get the software to actually show the right type of gauge though, and may need to play with calibration. If your happy it now works (we know you have a new gauge now, but that doesn't prove the wiring, you could do that with a multimeter with the wires at the other end of the car and the same test as before) it may be a case of getting someone with the proper software to sort it out for you. Unless you can get whatever you have to work properly.

The new gauge should show the contents of the tank if your talking about the pointer on the new gauge. If it doesn't (the magnetic pickup should set itself when you put it in place, might need to turn it around a bit to get it to pickup on a 4 hole tank) then it would sound like you have a problem with the float side. Though I'd think that unlikely its not impossible. Could be that its stuck at the empty position.

Does the gauge move if you unscrew it, move it to full with the screwdriver on back technique, then put it back on the tank?
