Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
Has anyone gone into your gas tank recently? By this I mean changing fuel pump. This fix may have caused the fuel float to be bent, or damaged, or possibly unhooked from it's securing tab. Either way you will have to go back and remove the whole unit from the tank to find out. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

The problem is with the sensor inside the gas tank since the method of indication used is by passing an electric current & the resistance to that current is a measure of level of liquid in the tank , i.e.
the gauge consists of two parts:
However if this float gets stuck to the bottom of the tank or a leak fills up the float making it sink to the bottom of the tank, thus always indicating 'E' for empty.........................sodeep

First disconnect the negative wire from battery. Raise the rear othe van and use jackstands to support it. Remove the filler cap and disconnect the filler line to tank. Connect a hose and drain or siphon fuel out of tank into a fuel container. Remove the screws from the filler tube to the van body. Disconnect all wiring and hoses from the tank and mark each to help you remember how to put it back together. Remove the mounting bolts and nuts,lower the tank slightly and remove the filler tube. Lower the tank more and support it while disconnecting the rollover/vapor separator valve hose. Then remove the tank. Installation is the reverse of removal. Be sure to have a fire extinguisher (class b type) to use incase of a fire. Hope this will help you.

The gas tank capacity is 20 US gallons, but the tank will really only hold about 19.5 gallons. As far as mileage goes that really depends on your driving habits and the load it carries, just you? more? I would think that your average miles to the gallon would be in the range of 14-16 town and highway.
Here is the EPA ratings, which never match the real world gas mileage.
EPA Fuel Economy: City: 17-20 Highway: 22-26

The filler hose has a rollover check valve at the bottom of the hose. The only way to do it without dropping the tank is to find the fuel pump relay in your electrical distribution box under the hood, unscrew the fuel line at the throttle body, attach a hose to the line, run the line into a clean container, and jump the wires in the fuel pump relay. It will only do it withe key on.
