  • Installing a external gas gauge

    The gas gauge on the dash is shot. Has any body ever installed a external gauge using the stock sending unit in the tank. And if you have where can I get one. I am to old to walk for gas and the ex wife will not walk either.

    New sending unit is $90 and easy to install

      He is asking about an external gauge because the OEM is faulty. His sending unit works.

        Look at aftermarket fuel gauges that work between 140-143 ohms empty and 11-13 ohms full as those are the resistance numbers of the tank sender, summit racing has one that's 160 to 15 ohms that would probably work

          Are you sure it's not the sending unit? They're known for failing and I've never heard of the gauge itself going bad. Then again, you could always add a sight glass like this one.

            That's the general idea I'm doing to mine, to hell with the faulty factory set up...I'm gonna use the fuel gauge in the instrument cluster for my boost gauge when I finish with my turbo install!
