Or mount it to the back/inside of your gauge cluster? (without any case)

Sounds like a good idea. I could leave enough wire on it so I can drop it low enough so I can get to it to calibrate the gauge then stick it back up there

Thought I'd update this post

Not installed yet but I thought I'd calibrate it before it goes in. Lots of room on the work bench and I'm not on my head trying to make it work and trying to read the gauge.

Well to make it short

IT WORKS!!!!


The Honda gauge now talks nice to the Subaru sending unit. And they said mix marriages don't work.

The only thing that you need to know is if you take the sending unit and go from empty to full and vice versa the gauge takes a while to get there. I guess thats the built in sloshing feature working.

Same goes when you adjust the potentiometer for setting the fuel gauge needle to the full or empty mark, the needle moves slow

Instructions were easy to follow

Or just 'pot' it using resin or hot glue gun, no case and 100% waterproof, (once you have set it up of course, or leave the DIP switches open).

This should work for your setup also.

CBR gauge to your WRX sending unit

Thanks, but the wrx sender and the cbr gauge actually work perfectly together. Theirs no need for an interface module.
