I would look for a loose wire in the gauge circuit, most probably on the tank unit. The other possibility is the instrument panel voltage regulator which supplies regulated voltage the the panel gauges. Mostly these are built into the fuel gauge, so if faulty, the gauge itself will have to be replaced.

Town and Country Van running out of gas and guage says half a tank what could be the problem?


If your fuel gauge is showing you in accurate readings this is normal to all vehicles that are not used to fill-up gas full regularly but sometimes the cause of the inacuracy is due to faulty float valve in the gas tank you need to replace it

Fuel gauge faulty / gives weird levels of fuel


The fuel level sensor is bad. The tank will have to be taken down to replace the level sensor. There is little fingers on the resistor that wear down and loose contact causing the gage to read incorrectly.

Gas gauge sometimes works 1995 dodge b2500 van


The Sending Unit is Inside the Fuel Tank at the End of the Intake Line. You will have to Drop the Tank and Change it. Your Guage should be just fine after the Repair

Seems like it's not getting enough gas


It could be your fuel pump with your car not running right, the gas gauge thing i have no clue maybe the sensor inside the tank is messed up. or it could just be your fuel filter not doing its job. Htere are a few things it could be I would say Fuel Filter, Pump and maybe a vacume (spelling) problem, I would need to be there and hear it running or drive it to really figure out what it is
