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 bed...so the sight glass has nowhere to hang from that I can see.
