Non-working fuel gauges are common on Sprites that come through our shop. We fix a lot of sender issues, but often the gauges are missing, or mis-matched to the fuel tank sender.
Here’s a great solution… our new programmable fuel gauge will work with any vintage sender.
We ship these programed to work with the stock correct early Spridget sender, but Instructions are included so you can program the gauge to match your sender if it is not stock, and, once that is done, you’ll have a nice looking and working fuel gauge. These are styled to match our replacement speedos and tachometers, or use them with your other originals. This gauge looks good in any Spridget.
So if you have an early Spridget with a screw in fuel sender, this gauge will work with your sender right out of the box. If you have a non-stock sender for whatever reason, follow the instructions in the box to re program the gauge. To adjust the programming, you use the black trigger cable included with each gauge.
Restorer's tip: If your gauge and sender are out of the car, it's always smart to test the two together, before you put the sender back in and it is difficult to access later.
