The ohms are correct for the North American standard, but what gauge do you have?

If you are looking at the ones near the top of your link AND they are made by Centroid (which they look to be), they are absolute garbage. I had one custom made by Centroid and they could not get it to work correctly after numerous revisions and replacements for my fuel cel in my prerunner (long story). FWIW...

It is best to pull out your old sender and see what was used along with the length.

I havenít replaced the one in my boat since it is still working but the one in my Prerunner I used a cheapo Summit float style for the time being but it reads backwards on that application due what was available ohms wise and the OE cluster gauge. When I replace it or if the boats sender ****s the bed, Iím calling these guys:

^^^^^ Just let me know when that happens - there are some other players for senders whom have really good units.

I would suggest VDO, you can get either tube type or float arm
