Group Buy on SpeedHut Gauges

So when you brought the sending unit into the cab did you use its full range of swing to determine empty, 1/4 full, half full ...?

 

Yes. I did the coarse setting with the MM and then refined it with the gauge.

When you had the programing done could you swing the float up and down and see the gauge react?

Yes. The needle moved slowly which gave me some hope. I then installed the sender and added gas at a known amount and checked the gauge to verify. It was very accurate without any other tweaking but I wanted to get it dialed in at the 3/4 mark since that is probably pretty close to the point where the tank narrows. The drive home went well and the needle was more stable than it has ever been.  The real proof will be when it get's down a little past half. that is when I really noticed the massive swings. The needle would literally go from half a tank to empty.

Oh I know all about that.

This is great news, I think the Tanks Inc. MeterMatch is just the TechnovVersion unit with a different sticker on it, the price is all most identical.

Yes but the owner of Technoversion drives a 240 so there is that to consider:)

 

Went for about a 45 min drive today. Gage went down as expected and was rock steady the whole time.  I do want to reiterate that I change my sender wire and installed the MM at the same time.  I would do that first since old wire and connections are not a great combo for dependable ohm eadings

So I finally had the right combination of events to where I ended up with 1/4 tank and the time to drain and measure. I used a 5 gallon gas jug and it was so close to 4 gallons that I'm calling it a winner. The needle does start to swing a bit down around 1/4 tank and I did have one scare. I was about 30 min from the shop and I was hovering around 1/4. I pulled up to a light that was on a bit of an incline and the needle bounced down to E for long enough for me to convince myself I was running out of fuel. I wasn't but without knowing for sure I threw in a few gallons. 

 

It is way better than it was before and I'll probably run it down to 1/8th and see where I'm at. As long as I can count on it to between 1/4 and 1/8th then I'm golden since that is usually as low as I run it.

Any numbers please ? Of course it probably won’t match mine , but hey- maybe it will. I’m fairly close but it still drops hard close to the quarter tank . 
love the GPS speedo and playing with the stop watch

As in Ohm readings? No not really. Since I used the calibration feature of the MeterMatch as opposed to the pre configured method there isn't any way to know for sure.
