I have one of these floats and I want to know why it reads empty and when we had them fill the tank it only took 95 gallons to fill? Our tank is 275 gallon. Any ideas? Can the length of the line that the float attaches to be adjusted to go a little farther down?

Answer: 
I once had the opposite problem, where the gauge showed half full whereas the tank was almost empty. It turned out that I had my 275 gallon tank placed horizontally, but had accidentally installed a vertical tank gauge.
You might want to verify that you don't have the opposite problem; namely, a horizontal tank gauge in a vertically oriented tank.

Answer: 
During my time in this industry I have found oil gauges not to be accurate but to be consistent.. Also and especially with the older style tanks with the end outlet, you never want to empty them because there is sludge at the bottom of the tank. So the gauge will read empty even though there is still oil in the tank, but it is oil that you don;t want to use. Further because of this sludge that would Read More
During my time in this industry I have found oil gauges not to be accurate but to be consistent.. Also and especially with the older style tanks with the end outlet, you never want to empty them because there is sludge at the bottom of the tank. So the gauge will read empty even though there is still oil in the tank, but it is oil that you don;t want to use. Further because of this sludge that would collect on the bottom of tanks, the float arm does not let it go all the way to the bottom, as it could get stuck. However this does not account for what you are describing. I wonder if the gauge was installed with the arms swing oriented in the wrong direction so that as it swings it is hitting the tank and does not have a complete range of motion. This may be hard for you to visualize feel free to give me a call and we can talk about it. Chris 978 651 3301 Read Less

Answer: 
I am not exactly sure on what you want to adjust so I am a little uncertain about how to answer. I can tell you that oil tank gauges are so much accurate but instead consistent. There float does not go all the way to the bottom of the tank because you do not want it to stir up any containment that may collect at the bottom of the tank. So when it reads empty there should still be oil at the bottom of the Read More
I am not exactly sure on what you want to adjust so I am a little uncertain about how to answer. I can tell you that oil tank gauges are so much accurate but instead consistent. There float does not go all the way to the bottom of the tank because you do not want it to stir up any containment that may collect at the bottom of the tank. So when it reads empty there should still be oil at the bottom of the tank. You don;t want to run the tank empty as it will require that you bleed the oil lines and fuel pump. It is often problematic to get air out of the lines. I have know some people to bend the rods of the gauge actuator to get it to where they want. Read Less

Answer: 
Today all new tanks are required by national code to have 4 2" threaded tappings on the top. If you have and older tank it could be smaller. You would need to look at the tank and measure it.

I would like to know what is the height of the Gauge from the 2" thread to the top of the gauge.

I am adapting as a level for a container that has a sliding lid and there is limited clearance.

Answer: 
I just went to the warehouse and measured one. I get 41/2" from the base of the threads to the top of the gauge glass. When screwed in to the tank you it will thus be shorter. If you need more info feel free to give me a call and I can send you some pictures via my mobile phone. Thank you chris 978 651 3301
