Can anyone tell me the location of the fuel gauge sender on a 23 WA. I have twin Yamaha 150's, with a digital multi-gauge. The gauge appears to be working, except for the verticle bar gauge that shows fuel level.

I think the sender is under the removeable tray in the floor between the helm seats. It's gotta be on the centerline of the tank somewhere. It probably has a red wire with white stripe that comes up to the helm instrument panel, and might even have a paper tag saying "fuel sender".

I too have the Yamaha multi-gauge package on my '92 23WA, which I like, excpet for the bar graph fuel level indication. Maybe the dampening circuit is too slow, or something, but I ended up wiring the factory fuel gauge (needle type) in parallel, via a selector switch, so I can use either the Yamaha gauge or factory gauge (can't use both at the same time).

Thanks for the reply and email. I am checking it again. My fuel tank only protrudes about six inches into the area between the helm seats. My 23 WA manual show a "Level Indicator" slightly in front of the middle of the gas tank. I might have to unscrew the transom floor to get at it. I'll let you know.

Thanks again

Yeah, for some reason, I thought that "level indicator" was like a secondary gauge, like on a portable gas tank or something. I hunted all over that tank for such a gauge glass. No such animal.

I was just e-mailing another 23WA owner about the exact same problem. He stated his tank was mounted furtehr back, such that it's front edge does not enter the access watch area. I'm wondering if that is due to his boat not having a Whaler Drive, and thus the factory mounted the fuel tank further aft to maintain proper trim. First I've heard of that...

Keep us posted on what you find. Pat

On my 23 the sender is also under the removable tray in the floor between the helm seats. My boat has the optional 180-gallon fuel tank. The sender is even with the back edge of the hatch on top of the tank.
Maybe you have the standard 150-gallon tank, I would think that that would push the sender back under the deck.

That's interesting John, as that's where my fuel sender is located. I wonder if I have the 180 gallon tank? I can't find any mention of it in any paperwork that I have, and can't find a tag or label on the tank itself...

Will have to investigate this further. I would love to find out I have the bigger tank.
