2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Question: Hard start

When starting my truck it often takes two or three attempts. It kicks over but does not fire. It runs great and theres no knocking and the gas mileage is great. I've change fuel filter, air filter, and ran a fuel injector cleaner through the system several times. Any hints? or tips? -

I have trouble starting my truck with a cold or hot engine. My gas guage keeps going from full to empty when driving. Otherwise the engine runs good.
