For Americas boats I have just come across an alternative to special ordering Philippi senders from Europe. A US company called KUS makes senders that are literally drop in replacement for the crappy auto-type the factory uses. They come with an SAE flange and can be ordered with Euro-spec 0-180ohm range. Literally a 5 minute job to get a proper sender installed.

I had ordered the Philippi but for whatever reason my fuel tank has the retaining machine screws welded in so without serious messing around I couldn’t install it. The KUS sender is a god send. I have no link to company other than very happy bunny.

KUS also does black and potable tank senders that are also in theory drop in but I have not needed that yet.
