    I just purchased a van ( im ashamed to say what brand so I wont ) Anyhoo, It has dual tanks and of course... A switch to choose which tank to use. Is there any special procedure I have to do to get the tanks switched other than flipping the switch? Because I flipped it while the van was running in park.. and nothing happened. At least nothing with the Fuel indicator. Hmmmmmmmmmm

    Sounds more like something electrical. Bad switch or gauge.
    The switch controls the sending units from each tank (fuel level)and a silenoid valve on the fuel line that switches between the tanks. Check your fuses first and try filling up one tank only for the test.
