    Suspect these are problems for an auto electrician. I have read of similar fuel gauge problems elsewhere caused by a faulty sender in the tank, and also by a problem with the gauge itself (poor earth i think). The tickover is best adddressed by getting a VAGCOM check. Again it could be electrical eg sticky or failing throttle position sensor, or electronic eg an ECU fault needing reset or a sensor on the way out.
