You do need a sending unit. BRP has a nice one that is capacitive or inductive, anyway it doesn't use a float. You just tell it what empty is and what's full.

DO NOT get the one with the float......It's a pain in the ass! The one BRP sell's makes it a piece of cake, and is more accurate!

I have a setup with autometer gauge and float for $110 new in box. Don't need it after all. I bought a fuel safe and carbon fiber gauge, so selling this setup!

I would think any guage will work with the sender.......I have some no-name off the wall sender with my Autometer and it works fine. Just follow the instructions that come with the guage.

No dude sorry but you do need to match the resitance reading with the sender and gauge. The link I posted shows a 33-240 ohm sender. The gauge needs to match.

Duh, forgot about that......Thanks Curtis. The Hardin Marine sending unit is probably 33-240 ohm (I think thats all they sell), so youll just have to make sure your gauge matches. Go to the Hardin Marine website and look up your sending unit and verify.

Is this the one youre using?

I looked up all the info earlier,,, there is only one Auto meter gauge that is programmable for use on 33 to 240ohms. And runs $119. The one that BRP depicted is not the same one.

You can not tell me that BRP is only making $20 to $30 bucks on this set up. This is why I am scratching my head on this one.

There are lots of Autometer's that will work.......Cobalt, Carbons, Sport-Comps and Pro-comps to name a few. All electric, not mechanical though...
