Classic Fuel Gauges are compatible with other manufacturers' senders such as AutoMeter, LTL Industries, Maxima, Medallion, Stewart-Warner, Sun Electric, and others.
They may also be ordered to read correctly with many OEM fuel senders such as those from stock GMC, Ford, or Chrysler vehicles. For reliable and accurate fuel level readings, order a matched Classic Fuel Sender with your fuel gauge.
Refer to the chart below to determine which electrical resistance range your stock tank sender is. A matched Fuel Gauge manufactured by Classic can then be ordered for reliable operation with your stock sending unit.

Fuel gauges from Classic Instruments™ are available in most of the resistance ranges shown below.
This greatly simplifies gauge-to-sender matching when a stock donor tank or foam-filled fuel cell will be used in the vehicle.
