A couple of issues to fix

Hi guys,  just installed a fuel pump check valve on my Avant.   Went strait 
forward (or so I thought). Did the job when the tank was near  empty.  Started 
car, all fine and fuel gauge was near empty as when I  started.  Filled tank 
and ran out of gas at 1/4 (80 miles left on  computer).  I did notice that it 
did seem to run along time on 1/4.  I  presume I screwed up something putting 
the sending unit back in, but have no  idea what.  So before I tear it apart 
again, any ideas?
Second, my AC has never been recharged since new, have 220k on the  clock.  
It works and blows cool air when the outside temp is not to hot,  but warm air 
when it is hot out.  I presume I need a pound or so of R-12.  The compressor 
kicks off and on, all the other stuff seems OK, (fan on high  etc).  So before 
I open Pandora's box and bring it in for a recharge, I am  wondering if I can 
wait until next summer or if I will damage something when I  use the defrost 
during the winter?
Any suggestions welcome.
