Get the electric. A mechanical gauge would bring fuel into the cab to the back of the gauge. Not the safest thing.

I think the EV 2's use an electric sender. I wouldn't be/am not afraid of a mechanical fuel pressure gauge inside the cab. My fuel pressure gauge is mechanical and it taps directly off the bowl and goes into the cab.

People use mechanical oil pressure gauges in the cab all the time. This isn't gasoline. Lots of people use an isolator, but half the time they fail anyway and then you have fuel at the gauge anyway.

Go electrical, not mechanical!! Sure would suck to have diesel fuel leaking in the cab, it's a pita to get the smell out of the carpet.
