Centroid Products of Edgewater, Florida use capacitance probe to measure gasoline, said to be more accurate with less needle bounce. Was told it works well with the BW OR 18' 63 gallon tank. Unit requires 12 vdc to operate...any first hand experience???

The issue of accuracy is largely unimportant. All you need is an indication. The reason for my opinion is that the gauges actually are linked to how many inches are at the fuel sender. This means that is the tank is not rectangular, in inch at one height will mean something different at a different height because of the shape of the tank. Also, how the boat rests in relation to how the fuel tank rest will give inaccuracies. Also how the boat is loaded will do the same, as will where the tank is located in the boat will effect the measurement. If you really want to know how much gas is in your tank, buy the Yamaha fuel metering system. It can be refit to any boat or motor and is super accurate. For the most durable and accurate fuel sender, buy a Gaffrig unit.
