When I built my boat I rang Stuart, told him it was to suit Smartcraft gauges and gave him the depth of my tank and they made me senders to suit.

As for fuel senders, can I get US spec ones in the UK anywhere? It would certainly be easier to swap the gauge than the senders
WEMA US probably don't deal with the UK version - As others have said talk to WEMA UK and they will sort it out or change the settings on the Smartcraft if possible.

Well, all sorted, WEMA UK will change the gauge over for me if I send it back to them....They are nothing to do with WEMA US but their customer service can certainly teach the yanks a thing or 2!

I had cause to speak with Stuart at Wema a couple of days ago and told him that this thread was running and of the wholly positive feedback he had received from several of us...

In stark contrast I have been trying to deal with another manuf /distr. today (who will remain nameless).....I wonder why the basic principles of customer service are so anathema to the approach taken by some people? Grrrr....

Not sure that's true, for Smartcraft they must be US spec senders and the Uk ones work differently.

The cheapest : unscrew your console gauge receiver and half-turn it, then re-screw !

Your problem is the way of the Resistor variation of the tank gauge, with one model the resistor value is maximum (approx 200ohms) when the tank is full, but with the other it is minimum (approx 30ohms) going toward the 200ohms value when the tank is empty.
