VDO: Ocean Line Series White Face Gauges: Fuel Level Gauges -

The gage can either be matched to the sender or the the other way around.

deniseO30 We just put a new tank in my boat that came with the sending unit. (made by Moeller) it hooked up to my old fuel gauge and works better then to old.
it would seem to me that you can remove the tank and clean it every couple of years instead of putting a big hole in the top for cleaning.
you will need a hole saw to install a new guage for sure. I found this on DIY, hope it helps!

Fuel Tank Questions

I pulled my fuel tank on my Hunter 30 the other day to replace the board that sits under the tank. When I got the tank out, I noticed a sending unit for a gauge on it. My boat doesn't have a fuel gauge on it, but I would like to add one. a friend gave me a fuel gauge, but I'm not sure how to wire it up. There is only one terminal on the sending unit and five bolts holding it to the tank. I Would also like to add a clean out for the tank big enough to get my arm in to clean it out. Is there a cover that can be purchased or is this something that I'd have to have made? By the way, it's a plastic tank.
