Gas Gauge

Has anyone came up with a gas gauge for the Teryx that would be easy to install? Is it possible that the gauge off a Prairie or Brute Force would work? Just some ideas to throw out there.

We installed a fuel gauge on ours from Black Rhino Performance.

BRP/Autometer Fuel Level Gauge KIT

Most difficult part is removing the fuel tank.

Gas Gauge

I was just going to try a gas cap with a built in gauge, like I use to have on my Polaris.
It should work.

Hmmm I am not sure if that would work or how accurate it would be, however, never hurts to give it a try and report back. It is surely easier to install than a gauge

Yeah, I figure as soon as I install something Kawasaki will put the Teryx out with a gauge. I like the idea of something that just replaces the gas cap, its not like it has to be that accurate.

I have the parts to put a gauge in this weekend. I'll post pictures. Using a Hardin-Marine fuel sender (not float, used in boats for more stability) and an autometer carbon fiber gauge. Shouldn't take more than a couple hours to do...I'll keep you posted. Oh, my cost into this is about $90.

Diesel - how accurate is the gauge. AZ - keep us informed on how that works out. If the gauge shows empty but you still have a quarter of a tank, like some gauages I've seen, I can do without that. But I'd like something, since I almost ran out of fuel the other day. I've been using the trip meter....but I'm idling quite a bit....going slow with ranch work etc....and after 57 miles or so...I checked the tank. I was surprised that I hadn't ran out...it was that low.

Keep a list of parts and post them in the how to section! That's a lot better price than the retail option from Black Rhino!
