I was going suggest the clutch might be dragging, but that wouldn't account for the fuel gauge dropping - and you'd notice that first and reverse were hard to engage if the clutch was dragging.

So I'd think it was an electrical problem. Try disconnecting the switch on the gearbox casing that activates the reverse light - see if that make any difference. Just pull the connector off and tape it up. At least it will either identify the problem or eliminate one thing. It could be a short on that circuit.
