I love those gauges that are programmable!. you can also measure your tank depth and bend the float to the proper arc for true empty to full if need be.. I like my float to bottom out where its still above the fuel pickup.. so I have some "fumes" to run on when Im reading E.

These SpeedHut gauges were not free but they are beautiful; maybe someday I will get to see them all in action... For the record I misspoke about the original sending unit, not that it matters, but it was 0-90 ohms, not 0-30 ohms... I like your float idea, but I'll just set the programmable low warning light on my fuel gauge to come on.

As the owner of a bus with a janky instrument cluster that's mostly hidden by the steering wheel, this thread is super-informative and inspiring.

The results you've achieved so far could be accurately described as being "bad as hell."

Thanks for posting this thread and especially for the detailed links to the exact products you're using. I was curious about switching to a push-to-start system, and didn't really know where to look.

Not a great pic but shows the lit up switches...
What material are those switch pods mounted to? I am redesigning my dash and haven't found an adequate backer for the switches I am going to keep.
