The type of fuel tank contents gauge you select would be based on a couple of things.

Do you need the contents gauge to be visible at the tank or remotely from the tank ?

If you require something to show the level but remotely from the tank the best choice would be a hydrostatic gauge as this is operated by forcing air into a sensor that sits inside the tank, the tube can be up to 50mtrs long so will allow the gauge face to be mounted elsewhere.
