[QUOTE=TIM;196523] We use the smart craft Gauges .... and think they are great .... But fuel gauges on a boat are useless and should never be trusted boat

Too true. The only really failsafe way is to have a dipstick to check the levels, but most tank installations preclude this type of arrangement. Personally, I get twitchy if I leave the pontoon without full tanks and a reserve. And, yes that is because I ran out once and had to limp home on the aux engine... My head was indeed hung in shame and I have no desire to repeat the experience.
