How to Wire a Fuel Gauge?

Answer

A fuel gauge works off of a 12 volt power and the float on the fuel tank that puts resistance on the ground to the gauge. To wire you will run a 12 volt power supply from the fuse box to the positive wire on the gauge. And you will need to run a wire from the float in the tank to the negative lead on the gauge.
