You have a massive fuel leak somewhere, plus a leaking fuel pump, and stuck float in the carburetor, possibly. That should be easy to find. Doubt all of that is going into the engine, or it wouldn't run at all. 


Make sure your brakes aren't locked up as well.

Check your oil and see if it is gasoline.  Try reposting your issue using some proper writing protocols.  Your post could be read s your van is using 0.2 gallon every 4 miles which would be properly written as 20 miles per gallon.  If you are saying it is using 2 gallons to travel 4 miles, the proper way to express that is 2 miles per gallon.  

If you are only getting 2 miles per gallon, and are having to put fuel in your van every 40 miles of driving you must be smelling fuel.  How sure are you that you are not losing this fuel while the van is parked?  In other words, could someone be siphoning the fuel over night?
