I'll be looking for one in the near future. I'm tired of trying to guess how much fuel is in it.

Being retired....I gotta pinch pennies, and can't justify the $160 for it....but, I ran out of gas the other day. I got lucky, it started running bad on the way back...and cough sputtered when I stopped and died. First thought was gas, checked, and I was suprised how dry the tank was. Thought I could go by the odometer....but with all the idling, winching on fences etc that I do, I can't.

I completely understand about the pinching pennies...hey I wonder if we had several people take hour readings at different levels of fuel and then did an "average" I would think that would get you close enough to judge where your level is by the hour meter?

No way of telling how much gas you have left is a big complaint for me. It would be different if you could actually see the fuel through the white plastic below the seat, but I haven't been able to.

Gas gauge is definitely on my short list of improvements.

I've had a hard time seeing the gas too (old eyes & trifocals). Just once can I remember seeing the fuel line with the machine stopped & light conditions just right. It happened to be right in the middle of the sight window. Other times, with more than half a tank or almost empty, I couldn't tell at all how much was left without removing the cap. Until I get a fuel gauge I've been thinking of carrying a small tape measure or something in the glove box so I can use it as a dip stick.....just have to make sure it's clean each time & have paper towel or something handy to wipe it after checking the level. I also read on this or another site that someone was going to see if the old Polaris caps with gauge right in the cap would fit. Anyone know the answer on that?

Back in the day of no fuel gauge for the Rhino someone put some red led lights behind his gas tank and it shined through the tank and you could see good.

Seems like a HI LED would be a lot easier to install than the fuel gauge kits. Interesting....
