Foolproof Fuel Readings
Classic Instruments’ new floatless fuel sender utilizes an internal pressure transducer to measure the amount of fuel in a tank, instead of the traditional rotating float arm and resistance card, which can lead to erratic readings. The part of the sender that sticks into the fuel is a hollow tube that fills up to the level of fuel in the tank. The change in pressure at the pressure transducer is directly related to the level of fuel in the tank. As the fuel level increases, so does the pressure at the transducer. As the fuel level decreases, the pressure at the transducer also decreases.
This revolutionary design comes with many benefits. The all-plastic design eliminates any possibility of corrosion due to alcohol, and the tubular design acts as a dampener to prevent the gauge pointer from moving due to fuel slosh. The floatless fuel sender has no side-to-side motion, which means it has no moving parts to wear out. It is top-mounted, utilizes the aftermarket standard SAE five-hole mounting flange, and comes complete with neoprene gasket and mounting hardware. This sender is available in three different Ohm ranges, 0-90, 240-33, and 10-180 and is compatible with gasoline, diesel, oils, and many other fluids. Each unit is designed for tanks 6 to 48 inches in depth and can easily be easily trimmed to fit individual fuel tanks exactly!
Let’s Kick It!
Kicker Performance Audio has developed a solution for iPod or iPhone users to easily add tunes to vehicles not previously equipped with a music source. The PXi50.2 Amplified Controller for iPod and iPhone delivers the weather-resistant quality expected from Kicker powersports gear, while also providing a way for users to enjoy their personal soundtrack while driving, and without any head unit!
The small footprint device features a “brain”/amplifier unit that connects with an iPod or iPhone and delivers 50 watts of power (25wx2 at 2 Ohms) to any aftermarket audio system in most any vehicle.
The tiny amplifier can be mounted or hidden, and its low-current draw is perfect for small charging systems. The wired remote that handles volume, basic track control and on/off power can be positioned within easy reach. Once an iPod or iPhone is docked on the integrated 66-inch connection cable, the PXi50.2 provides continuous charging to the device but also pauses the music when the power is turned off.
The PXi50.2 features powered speaker outputs for adding a pair of speakers, resulting in a complete audio system. Mix in a pair of KICKER PS5250 Powersports Coaxial Speakers for an intensified audio result, the PXi50.2 also provides line-level outputs and can be used with multiple or higher powered amplifiers in a bigger system. An 1⁄8-inch (3.5mm) auxiliary input jack allows the connection of other audio devices as well.
The PXi50.2 is made for iPod touch (First-, Second-, Third-, and Fourth-generation), iPod classic, iPod with video, iPod nano (First-, Second-, Third-, Fourth, Fifth-, and Sixth-generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, and iPhone.
