Since the gas gauge has been irratic I'd suspect the fuel pump. Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body. It should run a few seconds on the starting fluid. If so, it's a fuel problem. Try hitting the bottom center of the gas tank a few times with a hammer. If that gets you going it's definitely the fuel pump and should be replaced. HTH. -Jim
