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.
