Fuel gauge reading full

Model: 944, Year:1986, Mileage:187000, Type of use:Street use onlyFuel gauge reads full all the time regardless of fuel level. If I tap lightly on the face of the instrument cluster, the gauge needle instantly moves to the correct level. However, after a few seconds the gauge needle instantly goes back to the full position. This happens while Im driving the car. I sent the instrument cluster to a shop that specializes in VDO instruments.

using ethanol

Model: 944, Year:85/2, Mileage:130K, Type of use:Street use only
Given the age of my car is there anything I should do to it to use 10% ethanol, and anything I should do in preparation for 15% ethanol? It has been running fine so far using 10% ethanol.

Won't run past 10 second idle

Model: 944, Year:1984, Mileage:85,000, Type of use:Street use only
While driving home one night the car decided to stop running on the highway. I had it towed home & have since replaced the fuel filter & line. Now when trying to start it, it'll start & idle for about 10-15 seconds then stops. It then will not start again unless I let is sit for a couple of minutes. Then again it will only idle for 10-15 seconds. Any suggestions?

no electical signal to injectors.

Smell of raw gas inside the car

Model: 944, Year:1983, Mileage:140000, Type of use:Street use only
I've owned my 944 for about 10 years now and have always had this problem and thought I would finally post a question. When driving the car with the driver's front window down slightly (approximately 2-3 inches) you can sometimes smell what appears to be raw gas. If the window is all the way open or both windows are open, there is no noticeable smell. I did replace the carbon canister many years ago, but to no avail. The integrity of the hoses look fine. Are there any suggestions you might have?
