Why did it shut off while I was driving?


Change the tank gas cap. When it is clogged, vacuumbuilds in the tank; this prevents the gas flow to the engine.

Why does my 04 caravan drink a lot of gas?


Your fuel sending unit in tank is bad,may be incorparated with fuel pump or by itself.Car isn't going to drink gas that fast unless leaking.If tank reads a half,fill up to see if it's really half empty,and if it is half full,then your driving a gas hog.

Losing power when its below half full of gas


Pressure test the fuel system to measure the pressure regulator to ensure correct fuel pressure under all driving conditions. Do the test with a less than 1/2 full tank of fuel.

97 sl1 started stalling when 1/4 tank of gas now stalls at 3/4 tank replaced fuel pump and filter/regulator twice runs great when full


It seems that cap of the tank is not letting in air to replace the volume consumed by the engine. Earlier, when it used to stall when1/4 full, there must been less blockage of air but now the air inlet must be really clogged-up,so much so that after being emptied 1/4 of fuel, the negative pressure built up inside the tank is enough to negate the fuel pumps capacity & without gas it will stall the engine which is being deprived of fuel.
One way to make sure that this IS the problem, fill the tank half, do not put the cap try a drive at least for 5 miles & if the engine does not stall, then one can be sure that he cap of the gas tank has to be replaced............sodeep

Gas guage no longer works when below half a tank.


You are probably looking at dropping the fuel tank down and removing the float and sending unit ( all in one unit). Once it's taken apart, you may see that you can fix it or you may have to replace it.

Intermettent shut-offs


Most of the time when the engine shuts off, but only when you have a partial tank of fuel, the system is sucking air between the fuel pick-up and the pump (internal) or somewhere along the fuel pick-up tube (external). Either way you're going to have to drop the tank to fix it. Been there, done that!
