    It also depends on movement, is this a car/motorbike (some sort of mechanical device that moves) or something stationary - like a generator?

    If it's a stationary device - an ultrasonic sensor would perhaps be easiest (and safest) to install, or you could use a floater arm attached to a rotary sensor/trimpot.

    If it's not stationary - it's hard to get a solid reading because the fuel isn't at rest, I'd suggest purchasing a pre-made one - there are literally hundreds available.
