Default Fuel Gauge

i have the Van's analog fuel gauges that have both worked well until recently. Recently the LHS gauge 1st started reading too high (i.e. snowing 15 gallons when only 10 in tank), and now started reading too low (showing 2.5 gallons when 10 gallons in tank). I suspect that the indicator is defective, and was going to order replacement indicator, but find that it is no longer available.

Has anyone got an idea where i can buy the Van's analog fuel indicators?
