    Wot he said....

    I would echo Peter's comments.

    I have an Autogas system with the gauge remotely fitted to the dashboard. It shows full for ever and then seems to drop like a stone. It does look pretty on the dash though!

    Maybe I haven't owned the MH for long enough to be used to the amount of gas we use, but it does seem to last for ever, much longer than I'd been anticipating. So far I've only had to refill with gas twice, which has been a bit more stressful than I'd anticipated! The nozzle doesn't seem to want to connect properly and the doesn't seem to want to disconnect afterwards. I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong!

    Mine are ok but you heve to make sure they are fitted well.
    If they move at all they dont work very well make sure they are tight if not hold them with a cabel fastener and they work beter.

    They are not perfect but resonable.for an external gauge.

    In my opinion gas gauges are "pathological liars".
