I like suggestions no matter HOW "out there" they might seem. Suggestions are meant to stimulate creative thinking...and that's what I need right now...a lot of creative thinking.

Those are some very nice looking sight glasses, but they all end up being sight glasses. So they raise a couple of problems. First is location. I really don't feel comfortable putting a unit like that inside the cockpit. Raises way too many issues with safety and appearance. And with the new location for my tank, I just can't come up with a spot where I could put a sight glass on the exterior of the car. I'm assuming the glass has to be installed even (level) with the tank in order to be accurate. Otherwise I might have been able to hide it somewhere inside the pickup bed. But the tank will be just below the the the sight glass has nowhere to hang from that I can see.
