Aftermarket fuel gauge?

Has anyone ever added an aftermarket fuel gauge setup to a toy hauler with a fuel station? Mine shares a fuel tank between the fuel station and generator but there is no way to tell how full it is. Is there a way to add an external fuel sensor/sending unit and set up a gauge in the RV?

According to the location and shape of the tank, many fuel level sensors are possible. Simplest is to put a tube attached top and bottom of tank side and view fuel level in the sight glass. There are also ultrasonic fuel sensors that operate almost like a fish finder to determine depth of liquid in the tank. The most traditional is a float in the tank on an arm that pivots on a potentiometer that sends a signal to the gauge. They require an opening in the top of the tank to insert the float, lever, and potentiometer. You can find many aftermarket gauges by doing a search on Google.
