The gauge reading incorrect could be a bad fuel sending unit which is located in the top of the fuel tank or a bad float or a bad ground.
So when you accelerate is the lack of power only between 2000-3000 rpm in any gear? Has your fuel filter ever been replaced? Your MAF could be dirty too. Do you ever get a SERVICE ENGINE SOON light?
