Gas Gauge Reading False

I have a 99 Tacoma PR 3RZ motor, no power options....My speedometer doesn't have the clear plastic cover because it was broke off when I got it, My friend was looking at my gauge and he said " wo thats clear " and he touched the gas gauge and it moved the needle, I just filled up before this so the needle was a little above full as it always is and now its reading 3/4 of a tank, The needle has moved plenty of times before but never offset the readings...Is there anyway to fix this?

PS : I dont have a gas light either and I'm pretty sure I have a bobber

Did you try pushing it back to where it's supposed to be?
