Till I saw the 2ed to last photo I was thinking that the door popped open when you ran out of gas! :-)

Paul, You lift the lid (See second from last photo) and read where the indicator needle connected to the float is pointing to on the embossed #'s. With this unit there is no need to lift the seat cushion to fill the tank or check how much gas is in the tank.

Here is a photo of a slightly different model from an old eBay ad,
and a somewhat poor copy of an old Apex ad.

Colin, I'd give it a go, you can always remove it easily if it doesn't meet with your liking. Let us know how it goes.
