I currently have a electric fuel gauge on my console as the only means of visually monitoring my fuel supply. On newer 22' Outrage's an inspection cover on the deck allows for viewing a mechnical fuel gauge mounted directly in the top of the tank. I have a pristine 1984 with an access plate in this location that would lend it's self to the placement of a fuel gauge with viewing cover on the fuel tank. Is a retrofit kit available? If it's available whats involved in the changeover. Thanks

Russ - a while ago someone gave us the supplier of this hard to find OEM part. Somewhere in TX I think. Go back and see what you can find in the OEM section.

I did this to my Aquasport after seeing the same thing done to a Outrage, walked into the local West Marine and the fuel gage and clear cover were readily available. One of the easiest fixes to boat problems I've seen

Thanks, Russ. Nice to hear from you and Paula. Definitely see you guys next year!

Sounds like you're really fixing up the 22.
