Price Value Quality
However, while it's great that you can do this upgrade with a one-stop-shopping kit, my one issue is with the included sending unit. It has to be the absolute cheapest part you could find. (The tipoff was the plain white box with no branding on it whatsoever.) Even though I was prepared for a lack of complete accuracy (as explained in the product description), it caused the fuel gauge needle to bob around like crazy. DMP offered to exchange it, but I didn't want to end up with another cheap-o. Once it started leaking, I decided to go ahead and spend the money for a better one, a Dorman unit from a regular parts place. After draining the tank and taking the bad one out (oh, and the pickup screen had come off, and was sitting in the bottom of the tank!), I laid the two side-by-side. No comparison in quality - every part of the Dorman one is better made. Haven't filled the tank up yet to check accuracy, but it can't be any worse than the one that came with the kit.
