My Chevy Venture 2000 started giving weird fuel readings after I put in some relatively chep gas and let it get down to the end of that tank. I don't know if the events are related or not. I finally just started jotting down my mileage and no longer relying on the dial at all. Its annoying to have to do that but if I put money into repairs I want it to be only on items tha are relevant to the actual functioning of the vehicle.

if your fairly confident with tools than do it yourself and save big!!!
the tank should be fairly empty. support the tank with blocks or jack stands. The tank is only held up with two strapes and four bolts. being plastic and fairly empty, the tank should be managable to slide out from under the van. The float/sending unit is very easy to replace from there.
Check all of your wire connections, clean and put eletric grease on them before re-installing.
