Try injector cleaner.. Gas gauge could be indication fuel pump going. Float messing up. With something that doesn't cause a spark hit the tank. Not hard enough to put a hole but get its attention. See if there is a change. Fuel pump my though.

My brother has a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlas Supreme , he just got it, was having same problem, we disconnected the plug in connection at the transmission which disables over drive I think. His isn't quitting now, hopefully it keeps running. Ask someone about doing that.
