My LPG uses my fuel guage to read my LPG leval. I have been toying with the idea of useing a second EL gauge and mounting it in the dash. anyone tried this?

Another problem is when my gas tank is full it reads half full. Is there a fix for this problem?

Cheers

Josh

I think you just need to get the correct range sender for the gas tank, so that it is matched to the standard instruments.

check the gauge on the tank the interface ohms for el falcons is 2- 176 ohms.
try checking the earth lead for the sender at the tank see if it has a high resistance to earth this can affect the performance of the sender.
