There is a possibility that the float on your fuel pump may be sticking. that could cause your gauge to stick way up top or way down low.

You've got to check the( Fuel-gauge) sender unit which is inside the tank,
it could be faulty or stuck at 'full' position.
Its mostly fitted on top of the fuel tank could be easily accessable form the inside or you may have to drop the tank.

Fuel guage


the guage gets a earth signal from the sender ,, depending on the amount the guage rises accordingly ,, if the wire is touching earth any where the guage will go up to full,,,, disconnect the fuel sender and see does the guage drop,, it should if there is no short in the wiring ,,,,if it does drop you then have to recheck the sender ,,, if the guage stays full you have to check wiring for a short ,,,,, if you are able you could strip out the guage and disconnect the plug at the rear of it to make sure that the guage itself is not faulty,,,,

There is no reset for that and to replace the fuel guage you have to change the fuel pump, now there is another way where you can clean the guage reader (patanchio) meter with a pensil eraser and it will work.

It could be a bad fuel gauge in the dash unit, but....
Usually it's "The bad".
The fuel level sending wipe arm and windings on the fuel sender wear and send erratic readings.The only cure is a replacement fuel gauge sender.
The check engine light should not be related to the erratic fuel readings.
"The good".
If you have over 200,000kms or 120,000 miles on your van you need a new fuel pump anyway,so have a complete assembly put in which will have a new fuel sender on it.
