    Fuel gauge: Small problem.

    Had a few problems with fuel filter blocking up last year, found was due to arm on SW fuel sender was rusty and causing the debris in the fuel. Found a device in stainless steel with more or less the same resistance range, just needed an inline resistor to put this range in the correct window.
    Only problem is the range is the opposite way around, so now the gauge registers full when empty and empty when full. Not a problem as long as I remember but would like to get it right if possible can't think of any simple way to reverse but could easily have missed something simple.

    Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions for any device available to tweak this?

    No problem.

    It's shown as out of stock on his website, but available on his Amazon and eBay stores:

    I fitted one myself last year, and it works a treat!
