Tank senders

Anyone know of any in tank senders/ supliers that are able to be 'cut to length' to suit a specific tank ? No idea how deep mine is so really want to buy one, then be able to cut & fit it all in one go.

This avoids opening the tank again & means I at least get rid of the constant alarm I now have telling me me I have no petrol ! ( I do I have looked ! )

Also want it ASAP so I can fit over the weekend ideally.

Pete

Mercury fuel sender would do the job, adjustable from 4" to 24" with a std 5 screw flange.

42.33 + vat, sitting on the shelf

Pete - how did the old one fail? no bits have fallen off blocking a fuel line somewhere, causing your fuel restriction problem have they?

Have you thought of the ultrasonic ones? No moving parts - no tubes - very simple to install.

There are also capacitive ones, I think: read the fuel level based on conductivity between a couple of metal strips. Again, no moving parts.

Nothing obvious in the tank or in the pipes ( have changed everything now anyway).

While I could get into differant senders if Marinautic has one ( and more oil!) on the shelf I can get tomorrow and fit & be sorted by lunch I'd rather do that.

Clever! Should also be more accurate as the electronics can better average the level.
