    Ok ill clear this up, ITS NOT FOR A CAR!

    It uses car parts (plastic tank and fuel sender unit) but there is no fuel in it, it is water/detergent.

    I want to use a PIC to measure the ohms coming from the sender unit and display it on a 7 segment display.
    I know I could just get a multimeter but the table is in a dark area and LCD wont be visible.

    This will give me a rough idea how much liquid is still in the tank.

    Anyone seen a similar thing/project?
    Really its just a Pic based ohm meter that uses 7 segments to display the ohms.

    Here is the problem, your first post said it was for a car.

    I am locking this thread until the other moderators have reviewed it. Someone will then post the consensus on whether to allow the thread or not.

    If you look at the first thread you will find recommendations you can use to pursue your query meanwhile.

    After review we have decided that this will stay locked. You are welcome to post on other subjects, but on this you really will need to seek help elsewhere.
