Your fuel pump is going bad. It is in the gas tank. it shuts off when you are low on gas,because it gets hot. when you add enough gas to cover the pump,then it runs cooler,and will work. you can get by a month or so,just keeping your tank filled...but eventually the tank need to be removed,the pump pulled from tank and replaced with a new one.

Gas gage stuck on empty


Sounds like the cluster is not getting power, either from the key switch or because of a blown fuse.
I would check the fuses first.

My gas gage go from full to empty


Chevy has a very common problem with their fuel sending units (the thing that sends the fuel level info to your computer). The only way to fix it is to replace the fuel pump/sending unit assembly which is very pricey (over $1000 if you go to the dealer). If you can just zero your trip odometer every time you fill up and don't drive more than say 250 miles before you fill again you should be able to drive without running out of gas.

Gas gage read full when empty and sometimes emty


You have a bad fuel level sensor.The fuel tank needs to come out and the sensor replaced.You don`t have to replace the pump assembly.You can get the level sensor separate.I`m not sure if the parts stores have it but I know the dealerships do.Hope this helps.Good luck.

When empty fuel gage show full, I put 2 gallons of gas and it show 1/2 full


If your lucky, it's the wire harness from the frame to the gas tank. If your not lucky, it's the sending unit in the gas tank and that's expensive.
