First, this is a difficult to find item so I am grateful to have found it. I like that you can orient the sensor to either open or close its internal switch based on the fuel level. The wires are of a good quality, their gauge is thinner than Im used to working with, and that may be unique to my experience. One note: the description lists this sensor as working for 120 volts, it should say it works for UP TO 120 volts, it also works on 12V, 24V and anything up to 120 Volts.
Installed one of these on an ultralight and I love it. Building another plane and will install one of these as a standalone backup to the main fuel gauge. Very good piece of equipment. Good value.
Sensor failed after only 25 hours. This caused an engine out. Have bought a second one as it fits my application.
