2001 ML320 - Fuel Gauge and Tele Aid issues

As with many new members, I found Benzworld while seeking answers to my Benz problems. I love my ML & am so glad that I can fix most of my issues without having to pay $500 or more per visit to the dealership.

Fuel Gauge:
A month or so ago, my fuel gauge started malfunctioning. I don't know if it's relevant, but it started right after I added STP fuel system treatment. I filled the tank and the gauge dropped to empty and the light came on shortly. I filled the tank again and it came up to Full, but started dropping faster than I knew the fuel was dropping. It went down to about 3/4 tank, then stayed there until the tank was really at 3/4 and dropped as normal with fuel usage. Then it went bad again for a few tankfuls, then it started working again. Now I'm back with it not working and showing empty all the time. Any suggestions?

Within the last week, the radio is telling me TELE AID PLEASE VISIT WORKSHOP. Anything I should check or can reset?

Thanks for your help!
