the T shaped symbol is the lambasond ?? emission sensor,
checking the flame trap and the air filter might help
the fuel guage is possibly corrosion on the tank sender unit earth which was a common problem

new information

the car is actually a 940se K reg 92/93ish does this have any bearing on the information given

It's certainly not a 1.8. May well be 1986cc (B200 engine) - or 2316cc (B230 engine).

Suspect a 940 SE would be the 1986 cc unit. It will have a CAT, which explains the lambda sensor light. As has been mentioned, fuel gauge could be earthing, although the sender unit on these was not noted for being the most trouble-free. IIRC, it includes a lift pump, and was between £150 - £200 to replace when they were current.
