This is my first question in mechanics.stackexchange.com. I am a computer programmer and work in Location based services. Along with GPS monitoring, I want to give the clients , a proper manipulation of the fuel level in their vehicles.
Current method that we implement
We take the fuel wire (from the fuel gauge) and connect it to our GPS device which in turn returns the voltage. We take the fuel voltage at empty tank and full tank and then calculate the intermediate fuel levels depending on the voltage we receive. This method is very inaccurate and tedious to implement.
What we actually want
A correct manipulation of fuel and its level at various times.
Is there any other method via which I can monitor the fuel accurately. I am ready to buy any sensor of any cost. Can Anyone suggest me a good way to monitor the fuel.? With maximum possible accuracy. Anyone?
