The added benefit of having a fuel pressure gauge on the clean side of the filter is like you said getting an indication of a clogged filter. It's just a good piece of information to have with a diesel and especially if you have a VP44 that will pull fuel from the tank in the event the lift pump quits and keep the engine operating without you knowing it while damaging your very expensive injection pump.
That's exactly what I used on my gauge. The torktek with snubber is great. No gauge fluctuations or jumping around. Kinda gives me a little piece of mind knowing the Injector Pump is getting plenty of fuel.

I kinda followed your lead on this one. Great tips and advice on gauge and snubber. BTW if you want to make any adjustments to your gauge let me know and I'll mail you the programmer wire and disk.

Noserider. Thank you very much for the offer. I'm glad it worked out for you as well as it did for me. As far as I know my gauge is correct and hopefully will not have to adjust. Thanks again for the offer.

The adjustments would be different lighting options (background) but the one I wanted to control was setting the min PSI for the red light to illuminate. I set mine to 8 PSI. If you decide otherwise just PM me a mailing address.

Ok. Well I wasn't sure what the settings were for. Guess I should've asked. I wondered how to change the colors and minimum PSI. I hate to take your cord can I just order one for myself or I can mail it back to you.

Chad the programmer consist of the software on a CD plus a cord to connect your gauge to your computer. I think it was around $30 bucks. I'm happy with the standard background lighting but thought it would be neat to have for so cheap and set my red low pressure light where I want it. It's probably more useful for all the other EV2 gauges that have tons of parameters you can change. Your call. Happy to put it in a Priority Mailer and you can mail it back. Pm me your address if you decide to play around with it. You have to remove a small piece of plastic on the back of the EV2 gauge to expose the plug for the programmer wire. More like cut the plastic but it was pretty easy.

Noserider. Thanks again for the offer for the programmer. For that little cost I think I'll just order myself one. The time you send it to me and I send it back and pay you back I'd have close to half the cost anyway. And this way I don't have to inconvenience you. I appreciate the link to it. I didn't even know that the programmer was available.

The biggest thing I would like to change is the color cause it kinda clashes with my orange dash. Thanks again. Safe travels.

Thanks for the info.

It doesn't exactly say, but I'm assuming it's an electronic gauge/sender vs mechanical? (Can't really see running 40ft of tubing to the dash, and/or have it wash my lap with diesel fuel if the gauge leaks )
