Here is a fuel gauge isolator to do that job...

I'd never use one though. Mount the gauge on the cowl where it is visible thru the windshield. Another option is an electric gauge ... no need for an isolator with it.

Seems like the isolator deal is a little unreliable. I would use an electric gauge.

I got one of these gauges for sale if you really want to use a mechanical gauge. I will let it go for $65 plus shipping.

But as other have recommended, an electrical gauge is the way to go.

Technology has improved. A quality electric gauge is just as reliable and accurate as a mechanical one.
