Does anyone have a fuel level sensor installed, and care to share your experiences with it?

For those of us who still use the dipstick, this topic gives the fuel stick dimension = volume measurements.

We still use the dipstick and keep track of engine hours since last fill in our fuel log. That helps us know whether the engine on average is consistently burning fuel, and offers a good guess of tank level so we don’t have to measure often, which of course, is a messy job.

We did make a capped PVC pipe dipstick holder to keep the dipstick clean, and the storage area free of diesel fumes/smears.

Hi Marilyn,

We have a fuel sensor fitted, it came with the Volvo engine fitted by the PO. It gives a reasonable guide to fuel remaining but we don’t rely on it and still do regular dips.

We use TankTender (https://www.improducts.co.uk/brands/tank-tender) It’s simple to install, seems to be accurate and requires almost no maintenance. We use it for the main fuel tank and FW tank.
