What year is your truck? Usually the mechanical fuel pump pulses with kill a pressure sensor in a hurry on these trucks.

My truck is 2003 6.0 diesel. I didn't know of any problems with the electric guage. Hope I'm not in for a miserable surprise. Is there a thread you can direct me to discussing this?

Ok, great, got that cleared up. Completely different trucks, wrong forum.

'94-'97 trucks have a mechanical fuel pump actuated my a lobe on the camshaft. That causes for their to be pulsations in the fuel system, because of that when you put a pressure sensor the pulsations will ruin the sensor in short order. Same with a mechanical gauge that is not liquid filled.
