Why not buy yourself a smart gauge that will give you all the info you want. Speak to nearest dealer to ensure you get compatibility right. I have them with my new Merc and they are the best gauges I've ever had.

Came as a package with the new Ob I got two of them. They are direct to engine but there's the capability of nmea. As I sad give Cammy a ring he's easy to talk to

Faria (who apparently make OEM dials) make multifunction items and smartcraft equivalents.
Caution, you may get carried away with the choices and US fuel gauges use different resistances to European ones

Another option when having little room on console is to have a muti-function chart plotter with the engine wired to it giving you every conceivable gauge reading for your engine. I'm sure your engine has a smart interface cable available (NMEA 2000). You could kill more than a couple of birds with one stone.

Another member just found new Simrad GO7 XSE with totalscan transducer selling for 405 delivered.

It has a slew of other functions with a touch screen including a bluetooth music controller if that floats your boat. It's also waterproof and getting good reviews.
