Thank you very much. I'll admit to not typing "float" into the Univair web site because I looked all through the PDF Univair catalog and found nothing remotely close; not even the "cork" float.

You have solved my sight gauge concern.

Speaking of the fuselage tank level indicator (with the metal indicator wire riding on a cork), I seem to go through corks that get water-logged, or fuel-logged, and lose floating ability a lot sooner than I expect. Is there a plastic bobber suitable substitute for the cork?

Yes and I really like it. I found out I am burning more fuel at cruise than I thought. I thought I was burning 5 to 5 1/2 gal/hr but it turns out I am burning 6.5 gal/hr. At full throttle during climb, I burn over 8 gal/hr. It has caused me to change the numbers I use to flight plan. I REALLY like having a fuel remaining value at any time.
A couple of posts ago, I posted a picture of the installation. It looks great and works well.
