    Thanks in advance for the help. Here's my situation-
    The fuel level sender in my tank is 0Ω empty, 88Ω full.
    The gauge I want to use expects 240Ω empty, 33Ω full.
    Is there a quick & dirty circuit to modify the sender value so the gauge reads correctly? If I did it right, the equation works out to be y = -2.07x+240.
