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.

SOURCE: i have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 slt. and the gas gage will not read

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:

  • The sensing unit
  • The indicator
The sensing unit usually uses a float connected to a potentiometer. As the tank empties, the float drops and slides a moving contact along the resistor, increasing its resistance. In addition, when the resistance is at a certain point, it will also turn on a "low fuel" light on some vehicles.
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

SOURCE: how do i take off the gas tank of a dodge caravan...

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.

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.

You need to go to a transmission shop and have them diagnose this problem. It sounds like a bad TCM, Transmission Control Module, or a clogged transmission filter but they have the test equipment to make sure.

Looks like your fuel supply line has got chocked. This happens when the dirt from the gas tank comes into the fuel line when the tank is getting empty as it has happened in your case. Check your fuel filter and replace if required.

Runs great til fuel tanks reaches half way mark then cuts out or dies


Are you sure the fuel gage is reading accurately most gages just use a resistor to gage how much fuel is in the tank over time its easy for the gage to read off could be running out of gas unless you know for sure it still has a half a tank?

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.

Gas tank is empty when gas gage read 1/4 full


They could have installed the wrong pump assembly. I would first check to see if the float arm is binding on something not allowing it to reach the empty position. If you take the assembly out, have the key onand work the sender up and down thru its travel and see if the gauge matches the sender position. Disconnect the wire going to the pump so it doesn't get damaged.
