Fuel gauge 2000 vlx

Recommended Posts

I have the 2 1/16th inch depth and water temp gauges on both sides in the dash. Neither are visible anymore. I am about to replace one with a new depth gauge, and was wondering if it's possible to fill the other hole with a aftermarket fuel gauge and have it work with a teleflex sending unit. I ordered a new teleflex sending unit and the factory 4 gauge cluster hasn't worked since I owned the boat (just fuel). Did not know if the the gauge would be looking for a different resistance than what the teleflex unit would be sending. Sorry if this is a dumb question, just not familiar with ohm based gauges. Thanks

Maybe this will help someone out in the future. The fuel senders have an ohm range. Mine was 33-240. You have to get a gauge to match that. I oredere an  Autometer. A also replace the fuel sender with a new teleflex sender to get a more accurate reading. Instructions for that are in diy. All in all this was a very easy project

Thank you, but I'm keeping it with the fuel gauge not working. I installed the autometer fuel gauge in the bottom right hole on dash, and am installing a faria depth finder on the bottom left hole.
