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.
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!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.
This is a capacitive gauge. Inner tube acts as electrode against outer tube. Fuel provides the conductor. The less fuel the less conductive; 33/220 Ohms sender. I bought the 12" long sender, the Teryx tank is around 9 1/2", so you can cut the sender to length. I'll cut it about 1/8" to 1/4" off the bottom to keep "sludge" out of the sender. I bought some marine epoxy that is non-corrosive to gasoline, so this will keep the sender in place. The gauge will be mounted just left and up from the choke. The sender can be calibrated for empty and full so once in place (in the empty tank), I'll adjust for empty. Then fill the tank and adjust for full. Should work fine...should being the key word! I liked the carbon fiber look in the dash as well as the stainless ring and it comes with both an amber or blue bulb for illumination.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.
