99 cadillac deVille ran out of gas now it wont start

Its possible you cooked the pump. The pump needs liquid gasoline to keep it cool and lubed. There's also a chance the pump is damaged from debris from the bottom of the tank.
If you have fuel in the tank, you would jumper the pump relay to find out if the pump is running and what is coming out of the filter under the car.

Gas gauge does not work

unfortunatley the sending unit is in the fuel tank where if faulty it would have to be replaced you can check it by dropping the tank at the two smaller wires test the resistance in them with no fuel in the tank the resistance should only read around +- 5 also there is a plug just in front of the tank where the pump assembly plugs into you can check resistance there instead of dropping tank

98 deville will not take no more than 2 gallons of gas.

It sounds like your vent hose is plugged or your feed hose is kinked either way the tank will need removed to inspect

The gas gage on my 2002 deville does not register correctly. I never know how much gas I have. What are the problem areas to consider?

The problem is either a faulty fuel sending unit located inside of the fuel tank, the wiring between the fuel sending unit and the fuel gauge, or the fuel gauge itself is malfunctioning.

A good repair shop can find out for you which one is at fault by dis-connecting the wiring connector to the fuel sending unit and then use an adjustable ohms box to simulate the fuel sending unit, and the fuel gauge should read at a certain level of fuel according to the amount of ohms being put through the wire.

Fuel gauge not giving a correct reading

if you do not want to replace the sending unit in the tank,you could install a variable resistor in series with the wire from the fuel sender unit and adjust it to reflect the proper level.
