Anyone know of a under the hood fuel gauge?

I dont want a fuel gauge inside the cab to stick out like a sore thumb so i'm looking for a gauge i can put under the hood to check on.

Why would you want something under the hood where you can't see it when you need it at WOT that is the most important time under 45lbs will kill your injectors. The fuel pressure gauge is just as important as an Edge or ScanGauge. Just my 2 cents.

guess i'll just run a wire in the cab for a gauge and hook it up every once in a while and hide it under the dash when not in use. The harley truck looks way to good to have a stray gauge mounted somewhere.

This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.
6.0L Fuel Pressure Adapter
Column Pod
1 Gauge Column Pod (AT)
Autometer Fuel Pressure gauge---Bottom Left (This matches my Dash gauges)
Phantom II Gauges
I think the install looks good matches the rest of the gauge and there when i need it you can see if you have a drop in fuel pressure one of the big killers of injectors.
