Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car
In 13 miles i burn 3 gallons of fuel no leaks just burns it through the engine what would cause that is it a minor problem with a filter
It can be several things. The engine automatically sets to a RICH mode for cold starts. It will stay in RICH until a temperature sensor warms up. There are sometimes 2 sensors with one for the dash and the other for the engine controls.
Next would be a faulty fuel pressure regulator keeping the pressure too high. Or dirty fuel injectors failing to close properly.
Finally, air leaks in the intake manifold will make the O2 sensors dump fuel to restore the fuel ratio. Check with water spray bottle on intake seams while engine is running.

You can take the car to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan.
If you happen to need a digital dash, you can get one at a Salvage yard. Since you mentioned burned wiring, your car insurance may cover some of the repair under fire insurance. Give them a call.
Most likely since the A/C and radio worked, they are okay. The failure could be the dash display.

The owner's manual addresses this problem. It tells you to take it to a dealer for repair. The problem is most likely the fuel gauge sending unit which is located in the fuel tank and is mounted just above the fuel pump. It is probably sticking at the level that it was at for so long. It can be replaced by raising the rear of the car and accessing the fuel pump and sending unit from under the car behind the rear axle. Disconnect the two fuel lines and unplug the wire harness and remove the lockring with a hammer and screwdriver. Lift and turn the fuel pump assembly out for inspection and/or replacement . THE FUEL TANK DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REMOVED. I have done this many times.

There is a park switch under the steering wheel shaft. Hard to get at. It uses your foot on the petal to de-activate. Switch could be blown.
May be a mechanic fix but look anyway.
