LWB mini fuel sender signal range
 
Would anyone happen to know what the Ohms range (empty to full) would be for the fuel sender from a van/estate?
i picked a programable fuel gauge for my van project and need to program it.

Well I can tell you for a fact that a sender from a "Saloon" is definitely not linear. I dont know if its the same for a VAN, but mine starts at 40 ohms at empty, and runs to 240 ohms at full. If you measure the same values at empty and full then maybe both cars use the same sender.

The graphic plot of my sender looks similar to a hyperbola, the sender is probably made that way to match the variations in the volume of the tank. I would not be surprised if the VAN is the same!

Thanks!
I do suspect that they would the same as I never heard of a different fuel level gauge for lwb minis

Which programmable fuel gauge did you get?
Some have intermediate settings for non linear tanks.
If so, just measure the Omh's at
-empty
-1/4
-2/4
-3/4
-full

I’ve got SpeedHut gauges for my mini.

Those seem to have settings only for Empty-Full..The Spiyda for example has 5 calibration points.
Maybe invest in one if you are unhappy with the SpeedHut readings..
