        Best Uses

          Comments about Faria Chesapeake SS Instruments - Fuel Gauge:

          If you are replacing a Faria product with this Faria product make sure that the connections will fit. At some point Faria has changed the design of their gauges and the new ones are not interchangable with older models. It would have been nice to have been forwarned that the connections were different from older Faria models as it would have saved me [$] for a product that is unusable.

          • Q:

            I am assuming that this is a 6 volt fuel gauge. I need to find out what does it read? I need it to read 0 ohms-empty and 30 ohms-full.
            Please, let me know. Thanks.

              A:

              These gauges, as well as our other gauges. are designed to read full at 33ohms, and empty will typically read 240 ohms, as most senders send signals from 33-240 ohms.

              I know that this gauge will provide a reading at those ohm ranges, but if you would like specific information or any information similar to this customer please call our technical department, so that we can work with you directly to make sure the products we provide will work with your application.

              A:

              Most standard marine fuel senders come in two flavors, American and European. The American senders have a resistance range of 240 to 33 ohms (240 ohms empty, 33 ohms full). The European senders are 10 to 180 ohms (10 ohms empty, 180 ohms full).
              It is possible your gauge has not moved because the fuel sender has not moved. This can occur if the fuel sender is poorly aligned and "maxes out" mechanically before the tank is full. Another possibility is that there is a short in the sender wires.
              To test your gauge, remove the sender wire. The gauge will read full or empty. Then short the sender terminal of the gauge to ground, it should read the reverse.
