Available Fuel Gauge Options

Still searching for some viable fuel gauge options. Gauges of course are not the problem, it is the sending units.

Has any installed a fuel gauge in their Teryx and if so, what gauges and sending units did you use?

The gauge that neverenough and Zr uses seems to drown out the LOUD exhaust going up or down steep hills and then for the rest of the trip after the first mudhole.

Ok, this might be far fetched, but how bout a float system like some lawnmowers or older street bikes use.

Not sure I am following what you are saying. What gauge are you speaking of that drowns out the LOUD exhaust?

The sloshing of the fuel would likely not give the best reading...atleast this is what I have been reading.

Notenough and the other guy said they used their wives to watch the fuel gauge on that side, but was noisy and not too predictable.

Float gas gauge would work when you are sitting still taking a break, but agree that the slosh factor would not be good while riding along.

The more I read it the funnier it got. If my wife reads it it will not be funny any longer. I want diesel to try out my gauge and see how it works on his teryx.
