Will thi sender work for fuel pressure ?

Asked by DONALD on October 29, 2017


Thanks for your question. No, this sensor is not compatible with gasoline and other fuels. Please see our solid state sensors such as ATM-2246 or contact your Summit sales rep for assistance selecting a fuel pressure instrument within our line that is suited to your application.

Answer This Question


Does this unit work better than the after market versions/ The after market ones from Advance, Auto Zone, etc., consistently read low even though my mechanical gauge says my pressure is good.

Asked by SCOTT on September 13, 2019


Yes, this pressure send unit is accurate. I installed this on a 1988 Bronco with the 5.8L. The 1st AutoMeter sender read correctly, but after 3 years of service expired. I put this replacement on and the pressure reading are exactly like before, so consistency is excellent.

Do you know the ohms range for this sender? I need to know if it is compatible with my gauge. Thank you.

Asked by TED on June 23, 2017


Thanks for your question. The ATM-2242 sensor provides roughly 250 ohms at 0 PSIG and approximately 43 ohms at 100 PSIG.

Answer This Question


Can the Auto Meter 2242 sending unit also be used as a water pressure sen dining unit?

Asked by SUSAN MARY on January 28, 2018


Thank you for your question. As a member of the community indicated, unfortunately no, we do not recommend the ATM-2242 sensor for applications other than monitoring engine oil pressure due to the design of the components within. Our solid state stainless steel pressure sensors utilized with our digital stepper motor instruments such as ATM-2246 would be compatible for the application you describe. Please contact your Summit sales rep for additional details or assistance selecting an AutoMeter water pressure gauge for your application.
