Good Evening, the solution for your gas gauge floating from e to f and having to cycle your key a few times to start is fixed with one assembly. Unfortunately it means dropping your gas tank and replacing the fuel pump assembly which comes with a fuel level sender on it. Try cycling the key on off 5 times without starting and start it after the 5th time, Im guessing it will start a bit easier. Let me know how it goes and if I can help more let me know.

you'll see the blackness of the fuel that got stuck in the filter.
