Fuel tank sending unit in 70 Ghia

Trusting soul that I am, I believed everything I read that told me my 1970 Ghia had a tube style sending unit, as opposed to the float style. Lo and behold, when I went to replace my old one, it turned out that it was of the arm & float variety. I went ahead and replaced it with the tube style unit I had bought, and all seems to be working just fine.

My question: am I destined to run out of gas trusting the tube style one, or are they interchangeable?

Thanks, and I'll see you at the next meeting.
