The guages are version 2.80 and now I am scrolling through they do not display fuel level. Which guage usually displays fuel level, speedo or tacho?

i just posted that so that you could see what other folks had said about the sender wireing connecting at the motor and the info comeing back to the gauges via the blue bus cable, i found it useful when i did mine,
somebody also told me that the fuel sender info is a bit unreliable and the paddle wheel for the speedo is also a bit crap, so i didnt bother with either

I did away with the paddle wheel (using GPS connection for speedo) but kept the fuel. If you use a Wema sender and calibrate the tank it is pretty accurate - in my experience anyway. Mine is a rectangular tank so auto calibration should work - but I found the best way to 'calibrate' was to do this with the dip sensor out of the tank and move from empty to 1/4, 1/2 , 3/4 and full
rather than trying to do this filling up at the pump. The inbuilt damping/delay means you need to wait at each 1/4 point for the system to recognise the postion before adding fuel to the next 1/4 point. ..... too slow at Tesco's !
If you dont, you only seem to get empty and full registering !?!
