Hi There. Let's see if we can help. If truck runs normally after filling the tank, next time it acts up and you add fuel, record how much fuel you added. You then need to determine how many gallons your tank holds. A quick phone call to your local Dodge dealers parts dept with the VIN number will usually get you that info. Next, refering back to your notes, if you have a 20 gallon tank, it acted up at 1/4 full, then you should have added approx 15 gallons! This simple test verifies that the fuel gauge is reporting fuel level correctly. If it is, then there is most probably an issue with the fuel pick-up tube or fuel pump strainer in the tank not extending to the bottom of the tank. Inspect the exterior bottom of the tank. Are there indications of damage to outside bottom of tank? Is it pushed up or deformed? Fuel tanks, especially on pickups, are prone to damage from running over something. If no visible damage is apparent, have you had the fuel pump replaced or did the problem arise after the fuel pump assembly was replaced?. Summary: If fuel gauge reads right and no visible damage to tank is apparent, then the tank needs to come down for removal and inspection of the fuel pump module. Good Luck!

Diagnosing poor gas mileage is very hard to do without the aid of a computer, but a couple of things you can check without one.

Make sure your air filter is clean; check your spark plugs to see if they are wet (fuel) or have fouled out with oil; naturally a full tune up would be of help and a lube couldn't hurt either.

Also check your tire pressure.

Did a tune up on my 91 dakota, but still burning lots of gas. change wires, sparkplugs, cap, rotor, and oxygensensor but still burning gas out the tail pipe


Try running fuel injector cleaner through the gas tank. A fuel injector might be stuck open, letting lots of fuel into the engine. Also try replacing your fuel pressure regulator, and inspect the fuel tank return lines.
Good luck

The float sending unit is messed up and don't know now much gas is in the tank. The float may be stuck in a higher position showing more gas, in reality the gas level is way below. Try using a rubber mallet and tap on the gas tank near the fuel pump. It may help free up the float.

Pardon me if im wrong but there might have been a recall on that years model for the IAC motor. may not apply here because i dont know what rpms your at when it happens. Also watch your gas dodges are notorious for water in the gas tanks. I have a 1998 and it still does some of what yours does until it goes to closed loop and its truly warm(have to keep my foot into it until then or it will trip the knock sensor after a while.)This ethanol gas is horrible when you get below a quarter tank. hope this helps
