    Hi MikeMl,

    its nice, about fuel indicator you've been described,
    i have a typical idea here,
    i want to make low fuel indicator, (with Slosh filter)
    My sender Unit Read 0 ohm - on Full and 100 ohm on Empty,
    I'm not using any fuel indicator, i've been removed it,
    so i want this only indicator that remind me to refill gas.

    Voltage Source 5V or 12V

    Could please help me MikeMl,
    How the circuit Would be ?

    Thanks in Advance MikeMl

    Regards

    Path

    If you want to get somebody's attention you have to do an at, then their name.
    @MikeML
    The ohms aren't enough. We need the voltage which results at the sender at full and empty, and which way is full and which way is empty, and some idea of how full (or empty) the tank is when you want the light to go on.
    A little search seems to indicate MikeML hasn't been here for over a year.
    I think I will ask a Moderator to get you a new Thread which refers to this Thread. Then you will be more likely to get answers.

    This is the old Thread which contains valuable information:

    Maybe I'm too practical. I spent some of my earlier years in the local off road community, hill climbing and off roading Jeeps. The very last thing you would look at on a dashboard while doing this is the fuel gauge. If the vehicle is in a highly out of level dangerous situation, what do you care about the amount of fuel in the tank? If in a out of level position the fuel is going to find a new level that could show the tank empty or full depending on the way the sender is pivoted in the tank. What is the reason for a "slosh filter"?
