Re: [DMCForum] difference between fuel senders



Probably since the tank is tapered at the top and bottom; it takes longer
to go through the middle of the tank, and rightly so.

**Are the resistors on this unit replaceable?**

 My dash wants 0 to 100ohms instead of 100 to 0 ohms full to empty. 
Right now I'm still using the stock unit with the "top" of the resistor
"coil" grounded instead of the bottom.  It works when the flaky unit
decides it wants to give a resistance besides infinity.  I'm ready for
something new I think.
