Which fuel sender for aluminium fuel tank?

I'm after some advice on a half decent fuel sender for my aluminium fuel cell.

Anyone got any thoughts?

I originally had a swing arm type but this proved to be in accurate and not great at below half tank due to the movement of fuel in corners.

I changed it to a tube version from the link below and everything is working well even on track

I use it with the stakk gauge like below, even though the Dash2 has the ability to display I use other functions and find the gauge easier to read cos I donít want to be the one who red flags a session because of no fuel..lol

This gauge is good as you can set the ohm it reads
It also displays the fuel level last read when switched off which is really useful

Thanks for this mate - really informative. I asked as I was sure the swinging arm type would be very inaccurate, especially around the track!

Maybe a daft question here but is the length of the fuel sender just determined by the depth of your fuel tank? I'm assuming it has to run from the very bottom to the top?

It doesn't "have" to be anything but if you leave a bit of a gap it will leave yourself a reserve that you won't try to use normally

Exactly this

Mine is about 22mm from the bottom of the tank and Iíve got a swirl trap at the bottom so have quite a bit left when Hague reads empty

Did this myself so I had some fuel to spare and avoided running out of it.
