Miniature Guages

Hello forum guys and gals,

I have recently been looking to add miniature gauges to my 07 LT but so far been unsuccessful in my search. The ones I would prefer are approx one inch in diameter and operate via a sender unit. I do not wish to run small lines to the gauges that would carry oil and fuel pressure. Can anyone please offer some advice as to where I may be able to purchase such items.

Thank you.

Re: Miniature Guages

The only small gauges I could find were digital volt meters. Most of the market is for autos and the gauges are all 2 inch or bigger.

Re: Miniature Guages

1.5 inch is as small as they go. There are some on Amazon, mostly in 3 gauge panels. If you Google 1 1/2 inch auto gauges you'll get quite a few hits.

Re: Miniature Guages

Thanks for the two replies. I came upon this site by accident. It does show a small oil gauge but it is supplied by a 1/8" NPT fitting so a hard line would need to be ran to it. Can't see any fuel pressure gauges though.

Re: Miniature Guages

I was in the J&P showroom this summer. My take is that they are primarily focused on Harley-related aftermarket products. I didn't see anything I was interested in for BMWs, so the gauges in your link appear intended for Harleys.

Re: Miniature Guages

You can use any 0-60 PSI gauge you can find for a fuel pressure, just have to run fuel line up to it.
