Fuel pressure gauge, Mechanical VS Electrical

Im FINALLY going to put a real FPG in Blizzard, and am wondering what any of you can tell me about mechanical vs electrical. Im leaning tword electrical because of the obvious simple install compared to the mechanical plumbing/isolator install, ect.... Just want input on which may be more accurate/reliable? Electric is not always better. NEED INPUT.

IMO - electrical for interior (inside the cab) gauges and mechanical for inline and under the hood applications.

Powerstrokes don't need fuel pressure gauge. If you want another gauge get oil pressure

Why does it not need a fuel pressure guage?

Go electric and save the hassle. Just put it in the back of the fuel bowl and all is good. You use the plugged hole next to the drain valve. Nine has a 90* fitting on it in the pic.

You can if you want, I mean it doesn't really matter, just fuel pressure gauges aren't as important. Cummins' fuel gauges are more important though. Once you get to up in the higher horse power range it'll become more important.
