Fuel Gauge

The one thing that has really dissapointed me with the Teryx is the lack of a fuel gauge. Perfect example, we were riding in the desert a few nights ago...no a real long ride, however, I was interested to know how much fuel I had left. Even using a flashlight in the pitch black I was completely unable to determine how much fuel was left in the tank.

With that said, I know others with previous year Rhinos that did not have the fuel gauge installed analog gauges. Being as I know nothing about sending units and the like, I as curious to know if anyone has installed one of these gauges on their Teryx. Is so, could someone be so kind to do a write-up or something so that I can get this in as quickly as possible.

Thanks!

Are they thinking the Venom is going to have that option? I may just have to wait then. Thanks!

Sounds great thanks, cause if that is the case I will most likely just use the Venom setup.

Last time I spoke to them, they were going start the R&D on the unit as well as the dash mount.

Very nice looking unit, however, not sure that I am too keen on the speedo sensor. Did you see how you mount the magnet on the brake disk? Wonder how that would hold up especially in mud, water, etc.

I did find an AutoMeter sending unit that could work.

Auto Meter

Then of course they have the gauges to go with it. Would be nice to find something integrated into an LCD display though.

At this point I am tempted to go with the factory LED display and then possibly add some AutoMeter gauges for the rest. Still looking at options
