Fill up: It means to make full or fill a container (or anything) with something up.

Fill in:  It means to supply something that’s missing; to enter something (one field or a few fields only; not the whole form) on a form; to substitute for an absent colleague at work.

Fill out: It means to complete a form or a survey by supplying the needed information  (not just one field or a few fields, but the whole or entire form).
