smart craft/ fuel sender

Connected the smart craft to the sender unit on the osprey viper, and started the process of calibrating all the sensors, went into calibration 2
fuel tank capacity and entered the value of the tank 150ltrs, finnished calibrating and now the gauges tell me ive 99% fuel remaining. that would be
ok if the tank was full, I havent filled it yet, any ideas as to what is wrong.

Either you've got the tank sender cables the wrong way around, or the gauge is set for an American system and you have a Euopean sender.

Just gone out and changed the wires over to the sender, Now showing 6% or10ltrs so that hopefully
is as far down the tank as the float reads, next step fill up and see if the gauge registers.

Dai is right - the Smartcraft system needs US spec senders - these are available from Wema in the UK - there may be other suppliers, but that's who we use!

Did you have to change the sender in your tank to get the Smartcraft working Hugh?
If so, where did you get it from and how much did it cost?

I reckon your original sender works ok, or you'd have started a thread:
"Osprey Tank Sender Change"
