I have the "ROUND COMBINATION SPEEDOMETER AND FUEL MANAGEMENT GAUGE" but the connections to the tank belonging to me F60 are no longer availible. I already checked that.
I might be wrong but does the CommandLink not measure the "fuel flow rate" from the engine? The manual isn't specific but I can't imagine any fuel tank level sensor being accurate enough to measure instantaneous fuel consumption. The fuel level part is only going to read similar to your current display although it may have better electronic damping.
If this is the case then the amount remaining is simply the tank volume less the amount consumed, as I think someone else suggested.
I'm surprised that the cable / part you need is no longer available as it looks like it is standard across the range so loads of people must need them (unless I have misunderstood which bit is not available 6Y8-8356N-0 ?)

most cars probably have 10L left in the tank when they read zero. Many cars seem to sit at "full" for a long time before the gauge starts to move - exactly the issue described here (although maybe slightly worse). Before cars had "computers" controlling the dashboard I regularly noticed my fuel level change going up and down hill. And this is in a baffled tank, produced in high volume with a "matched" level sensor.
I guess you might be able to get a sensor which fits the size of tank better, or reposition it so it is less sensitive to the fluctuations in the tank, but it is a boat tank sensor and measuring liquid level on something bouncing about is never going to be perfect. Are Ribcraft really going to be able to eliminate the problem from hundreds of miles away?
