    Gauge FAQ: Read if you are thinking of buying some! - NASIOC

    What type of gauge should I get, mechanical or electrical?

    Mechanical Gauges:

    Mechanical gauges do not require power to operate.
    They can use power for lighting purposes though.
    They make direct physical contact with the item they are reading.
    Mechanical gauges can have noise to them. Some might have a slight rattle as there are moveable gears, pins, or pivot points inside which may cause noise.
    Can have a jumpy or have an erratic sweep.
    Generally less expensive.

    Electrical Gauges:

    No large connectors and tubing coming out the back.
    Can be mounted in more unusual positions without connections showing.
    Easier to install in tight areas.
    Easier to install a great distance from the item being measured.
    Stops fluids from entering the passenger compartment.
    The pointer sweep is more smooth and seamless.
    Generally more expensive.

    Omori is a great brand. Far from cheapo gauges. Grab them while you can. They went out of business a while ago.
