You sure it isn't the Wheel Mark Certification?

Marine equipment directive. 96/98/EC (MED) covers some equipment on vessels flagged in the EU. Basically makes sure that it complies with things like SOLAS.

Ah....that's what it is..... thank you! Have never noticed it before must admit.....

Its the only marking we can find on a fuel gauge we need to replace on the Pac as the casing is split..... Handy to know, but means we need to keep looking or the manuf details

There's only 2 standards (certainly recently) for fuel senders. Difference is in the resistance at full scale. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out what's what. Do you need to replace the gauge or the sender? As I recall, of the two "standards" one is heading the way of the dodo.

Jky, sounds like the gauge but on a pacific its 24v electrickery so may make choice somewhat different from 'normal'.

Fair enough.

I wouldn't think the sender/gauge combo would change though. Well, maybe the gauge, since it's powered, but the sender? It's just a potentiometer with the wiper being the signal.
