To the Guru's, i need some help/advice/guidance

i am making the GQ straight gas and have removed the fuel tank and most of the fuel system and am currently in the process of fitting a second gas tank.

I now have a useless dead fuel gauge on my dash and thought well instead of having 2 lpg gauges, it would be nice to have the original one give me a readout of the lpg in one of the tanks.

I know all the requirements with resistances etc. but my question is i have a 0-90ohms lpg sender on the tank but what are the resistances for the factory GQ gauge?

also since the plug is now disconnected where the tank was can i just run the lpg sender wire to the original plug that sits above the diff? which wires in the plug are relevant as i there is only one wire coming from the sender?

all help will be greatly appreciated..

0-90 ohms.
I did the same thing myself with my previous GQ (straight gas) and used the factory dash gauge.
Only issue is both my previous & current Patrols (no doubt all GQ's) original gauges are pretty ****house for accuracy.

Previous GAS GQ = Full tank read 3/4 & it still had a quarter tank of gas left when it read empty lol
Current Petrol GQ = Reads a full tank for ages but drops from 1/2 to empty pretty fast haha

With a couple of diodes and a 2 way switch I have both my batteries reading off the one gauge, I guess you could get both LPG tanks reading off the one gauge as well

sorry for the late reply guys i been interstate no internet access...

ok well better than nothing for me i suppose, how do i actually wire it though, as in where do i tap into wires etc. im pretty switched on with electrical stuff but this has me stumped.

i got one wire coming of the lpg sender can i just use that into the original plug of the gq that now hangs attached to nothing?

thanks guys
