yes hopefully, ive ordered a digital sender from mercury, should be here this week, will let you know when ive fitted it, I allso managed to connect the garmin plotter sounder to the smartcraft gauges, to give speedo,cog,fuel to waypoint etc, Even without fuel sender connected you still get a fuel used readout, so as long as you keep a record of fuel in the tank it gives a pretty accurate reading, Hows your viper progressing,here your going for the 150
opti,

Not sure who makes the Quicksilver part but these are good quality and easy to calibrate with Smartcraft :

http://www.wemausa.com/eshop/index.htm

and the price and service from here is very good.... especially with the $ as it is

Just swapped out the old cheap float-arm and resistor unit for one and its much better .... shame on you Dave Picton ! .... even though it worked

bought it from a local company, marine tek, cost 42.00, it is the float and resistor type though, but seems pretty accurate
