new owner of a 1998 C230

Just purchased a 1998 C230 from a Mercedes dealer for $3000 and although it has 158000 miles it looks like it was well cared for. One irritation is that the fuel gauge is unreliable--most of the time it vascillates between showing empty and full. Except the last tank fill it worked perfectly. Now it rides on empty again. Any ideas?

What suggestions to improve gas mileage? Right now I'm getting 23-26 mpg all-around which I can't complain about but would like to empower it for more.
