For the fuel gauge(needle): Faulty fuel tank sending unit or circuit; Faulty gauge or electrical system short; Incorrectly functioning voltage regulator or related circuits. For the fuel smell: Leaking fuel filter or fuel filter connections; Loose or poorly connected fuel pump or fuel line connections; Plugged, dirty or poorly connected fuel injector(s); Punctured or damaged fuel tank.
