Fuel management

Just finished installing some gauges to manage my fuel tanks. Had the panel made by Front Panel out of Seattle. They do a great job and they are not expensive (the panel cost me $32 with the engraving and the holes made to my specs).

Looks good, what is used as a sensor to determine the level?

RE: Fuel management

That custom panel looks great.* Did not know you could have panels like that made up.

The tanks already had floats in them. A float is bassically a variable resistance connected to the gauge.
