7volt regulator for fuel gauge

Postby 1fastgl1100 » Mon Mar 10, 2014 12:58 pm



is the 7volt regulator needed for the fuel gauge or for the sending unit? if I were to install a 12volt gauge would it read the sending unit or would it blow it?

The 7 volt regulator supplies voltage to both the fuel and temperature gauges.The "sending unit" is it's ground path.
You might be able to use a separate 12 volt fuel gauge supplied with 12 volts only if the resistance of the sending unit is close to what the new gauge requires...

Thanks I am looking at a programmable fuel gauge. all I need is the empty and full ohm readings of the sending unit and I will get that info once I run tank empty.
