New LP/BATT/TANK monitor panel.

Hi all! First post!

I am working on very slim panel mounted meter that can also have a touch screen "button" to turn the pump (and other things) on/off.

I want to replace the "old" micropulse system monitor with something a little more current (and expandable).

I have attached a pic of my first attempt at monitoring LP tanks. I will expand this to monitor the battery, the tanks, and maybe a couple of other sensors. The blue pots on the breadboard are 0 to 100 ohm in an affort to replicate the sender units from LP tanks.

My question is, can someone confirm for me if the Worthington 40LB aluminum LP tanks with sender/gauge are actually 0 to 90 ohm output? I know the micropulse tank sensors are 0 to 5 volt, but need to verify the LP tank senders.

Many thanks!!
