Hey Guys,

I bought a vapor computer and I was wondering what you do about the fuel indicator light as it does not have one. Does anyone know of any handy ways of rigging a light to indicate the fuel level?

I had the vapor with the dashboard and could never get the fuel indicator to work right. if you rig something it has to be a real light bulb, and not an LED unless you wire in a pair of resistors.

Either use an incandescant bulb or if using an LED follow this
(note the poster has drawn the LED wrong way round, but otherwise the priniciple is good)

The addition of the diode between the fuel & oil in the scheamtics below will give you a 'test' function, where the fuel light will come on when ignition first turned on (motor not running)


Option1:




Option2:
