I saw on like Marks car, and someone elses car, they have a fuel guage attached to the back of the intake. What is this? It wasn't attached to the schrader, Ross sleeps all day, so he is hard to reach.

I looked like it was on the drivers side. Shrader is low and more towards
Middle. I'll call Ross later when he gets up

The fluid inside the gauge is usually glycerin or silicone fluid which helps cushion the internals of the gauge from vibrations or an impact Wink
