That's true but in 1909 the automobile was still quite a luxury. Ford had introduced his Model T in 08 but it was expensive to most people. The price dropped through it's run, making it affordable but when the Jones Live Map was first offered the more wealthy better educated were the people who owned Automobiles.

Yes, Cadillac had one in 1913. I was looking for Studebaker in 1914 which is posted on the internet. Boothboy enlightened me via email about the incorrect internet info. :-) There is an earlier one than the Cadillac. Anyone want to take a shot at trying to find the car and year that BB discovered? If so, I'd like BB to respond to the answers and post his info whenever he deems the time to be right.

Seems the Cadillac was not dash mounted as was the studebaker

Let's try this question: Which make of car had the first dash mounted gas gauge? Bonus: Name the year this feature first appeared


The first instrumentation to appear was actually the speedometer, but the introduction of more-or-less modern electrical systems (first seen in the 1912 Cadillac), spurred on the rapid evolution of automobile instrumentation and other related developments. By 1914, Studebaker introduced the very first dash-mounted fuel gauge. Other manufacturers started to install tank-mounted mechanical gauges at around this time, but the available of either type of gauge was spotty for a number of years.

mechanical gas gauge
This type of mechanical gas gauge replaced the gas cap in early automobiles.

In 1925, Rickenbacker offered the first electrical fuel gauge. Since this early fuel gauge was wired straight to the battery, and not a keyed ignition like modern vehicles, it was button operated. In order to check the fuel level, the driver had to press a button to close the circuit.

Fuel Gauge Components

Every fuel gauge consists of two basic component parts:
◾an indicator
◾a sensor or sending unit

Fuel gauges can also include:
◾a float
◾a potentiometer

Here is the earliest dash mounted fuel gauge I have found. There may be earlier yet!

1912 Stoddard-Dayton

Just fun information.

A Stoddard-Dayton won the first race at the new Indianapolis Speedway in 1909

A Stoddard-Dayton was the first pace car at the first Indy 500 in 1911

When I first seen the pics I said AHA! I know what these are! Then all of a sudden I drew a blank. I've seen them many times, but for the life of me I can't remember what they were for.
