GlowShift-Tinted 7 Color 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge
GlowShift’s Tinted 7 Color Series 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge is the perfect gauge for any diesel truck running lower fuel pressure, providing readings from 0 to 30 PSI. This gauge’s monitoring ability will let you know if your vehicle’s fuel pressure is running at peak levels. It will also keep you alerted if the pressure level is too low which could result in damage to your fuel pump or injectors, in addition to a loss of overall horsepower. The included 1/8-27 NPT Electronic Fuel Pressure Sensor features a small, compact design and can be installed directly to your fuel system for extremely accurate readings.
Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series
GlowShift’s Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series comes standard with a cutting-edge design that includes a black gauge face and low profile magnified tinted lens. Whether your gauge is on or off, it will look amazing courtesy of this tinted lens feature which is at the heart of the series and gives your gauge a unique, stealth-like appearance. The illuminated red needle sweeps 270° and is powered by stepper motor technology, giving you an effective combination of incredibly accurate gauge readings with extremely smooth needle movement. The Tinted 7 Color Gauge Series comes with the ultra-bright LED solid color modes Blue, Green, Red, Teal, Yellow, Purple and White. Also featured is GlowShift’s 7 Color through dial lighting system which allows you to select and change the color of your gauge lighting display by simply pressing the button located along the front of the gauge. Easily cycle through the 7 Solid Color Settings and 2 Color Cycle Modes that utilize all of these powerful LED colors. Through these options, you can adjust the color of the gauge to match your vehicle’s factory dash lights, or you can customize the color and add your own personal touch and style to the inside of your car or truck. Plus with the Color Memory feature, you won’t have to reset the color of your gauge every time you turn on your vehicle. Your gauge will reflect your most recent color setting the next time it is active. By connecting the orange wire of your gauge to the factory headlight switch, you’ll be able to dim your gauge 30% when your headlights are turned on to reduce the brightness while driving at night.
Benefits Of A Fuel Pressure Gauge
A diesel truck’s fuel system performs multiple tasks, one of which is regulating the pressure of the fuel flowing through it via the fuel pressure regulator. If any issues occur with the system or the regulator, the result could be poor performance, possible engine damage, and other critical concerns. Common issues that can lead to fuel pressure irregularities include a damaged fuel pump or a clogged fuel filter. Ultimately, maintaining proper fuel pressure levels plays an essential role in looking out for the overall health and longevity of a diesel truck’s engine.
Fuel Pressure Gauge Install Parts
GlowShift’s fuel pressure gauge kit comes with accessories required for installation. In addition to the electronic fuel pressure sensor with 1/8-27 NPT male threads, you will also receive a 9’ Sensor Harness and 2’ Power Harness with modular connectors so that each wire can be easily connected to the back of the gauge. A Gauge Visor is available which attaches to your gauge and helps prevent sun glare as you’re taking readings. All mounting hardware is also included, and the installation instructions offer comprehensive step-by-step details on the fuel pressure gauge install to help walk you through the entire process.
Why Do I Need A 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge?
As the name suggests, a 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge monitors fuel pressure levels up to 30 PSI. Diesel trucks that ran on low fuel pressure were much more common in previous decades. Over time, as diesel engines demanded more, fuel pressure levels also became higher. However, with the value and demand for older and classic diesel trucks, low pressure fuel systems are still seen frequently today. GlowShift’s 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge is ideal for anyone looking to upgrade their factory fuel pressure gauge. It can also be installed to diesel trucks which didn’t previously have this gauge as part of the factory dash.
Note: This gauge includes a 1/8-27 NPT thread size on the sensor and your vehicle may not come equipped with the same thread size. An additional threading adapter may be required for the installation of the sensor. If you are unsure if your application will require additional threading adapters, please contact a GlowShift Technical Support Specialist.
Extended Harness: If the 9' pressure sensor harness that comes with the gauge is not long enough for your specific application, GlowShift offers an Extended Length Pressure Gauge Sensor Harness that features lengths of 18' for trucks with aftermarket lift pumps located at the rear of the truck and 40' for larger vehicles such as RVs. This sensor harness effortlessly snaps into the 1/8-27 NPT sensor and to the back of the fuel pressure gauge.
Dodge Cummins Note: A Snubber Valve is required when installing a 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge into a Dodge Ram Cummins. The Snubber Valve regulates, normalizes and eliminates fuel pressure spikes that are present during the ignition and startup on the Dodge Cummins Diesel Engine through the use of a regulator. High pressure fuel system spikes during startup are harmful and may cause early and unexpected failure of electronic fuel pressure sensors and/or sending units for fuel pressure gauges.
GM Duramax Note: If you are installing this electric fuel pressure gauge to a GM Duramax engine, an aftermarket lift pump is required for this gauge to function properly.
