You need to check the wiring harness that runs from the rear of the car that has the wires in it for the fuel gauge and speed sensor. (The speed sensor plugs into the differential and sends data to the cluster for the speedometer.) Sounds like there's an open circuit there and no signal is making it to the cluster.
