sgtskid Posted February 17, 2017 Report Share Posted February 17, 2017 To the E30 teams running: Anyone using an aftermarket fuel gauge with a stock BMW sending unit? The stock unit is full/empty 0/60 ohms which is backwards of every fuel gauge I can find. Autometer makes a programmable gauge but they are, at least, double the cost of a regular gauge. Anyone using the stock fuel gauge as a standalone gauge? Looking through the wiring schematic I don't see why it wouldn't be possible but curious if anyone is doing it. page 63. http://www.armchair.mb.ca/~dave/BMW/e30/e30_86.pdf I am building an e30 (personal not Chump) and I will be replacing all the stock gauges with aftermarket. I was going to ditch the factory gauges and make a replacement panel with the new gauges. I can gut the old housing and mount the gauges in it to retain the function of the factory fuel gauge if it will work on it's own. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
