    No problem, Joe. Not going anywhere soon. I have a few on-hand, so let me know.

    TTT for more info. If I'm doing a new tank and gauges will this work ? Is it a Centroid? Thank you

    Greg,

    Depending on the shape of the tank, either this one or a non-programmed one can work. Yes, they are centroids.

    I thought you were going to do some odd-shaped tank?

    Anyways, I will help you out as best I can with this.

    Thanks Bob,
    The gas tank WILL be two levels. I kind of lost site of exactly how yours would work so perhaps with the pic below it will make more sense.

    Unfortunately there is no gauge, except a custom programmed centroid, that will work and be very accurate, with that design of tank. Mine is designed for a specific style of tank, semi-vee, and would most likely be inaccurate, same for float sender, and the same for a regular, un-programmed centroid.

    If/when you get a drawings of the finished product, send it along and I will take a look at the accuracy of each type and see what we get. If a regular centroid will work within reason, it will say a lot of dough over a custom one.

    Oh boy, looks like my bright idea is not so bright. Thanks and I will get drawings. Here is a pic of the bottom of the tank.

    Greg, are you going to add lateral or side baffles?

    Jim, yes the tank will be baffled. Right now, the plan is to have 3 left to right across the width of the tank which is 23" wide.

    Bob,
    Based on your experience do you think a "custom" Centroid would provide an accurate readout?

    Greg, I think a Centroid could be made to work and be reasonably accurate....for a price. The one time programming fee isn't so great, I think, it's calculating the variable volume/depth of it. I think that'd be where the time is.

    Been quiet for a while. Might as well get back to these senders.

    I have one left at the house. Let me know if you are interested.

    Of course, I can make another order after that.

    I have not been keeping up with this thread, but I seem to remember the sender is not workable in a 16. Mine has a 24 gallon tank that is the relatively conventional "V" bottom shape. Do you now have something that would work?

    Bill,

    I have been a little remiss on this as of late. Busy Fall and Winter.

    I will take another look at things next week just to get myself back up to speed. Most of the info and calculations are at my office.
