Vacuum Gauge for Fuel System

I am interested in installing a vacuum gauge between my fuel pump and 10 micron filter. I looked at Racors Vacuum gauge ,but it's a bit too pricy for me.

I came upon a gauge on Amazon and was hoping that the experts could chime in if it's not suitable .

Liquid filled Guage : 2" Oil Filled Vacuum Pressure Gauge - Stainless Steel Case, Brass, 1/4" NPT, Lower Mount Connection, -30HG/0: Automotive

Re: Vacuum Gauge for Fuel System

Welcome to CF yo two !

Any of these SS case gauges on Amazon would work... Brass is fine for diesel feed, you're trying to keep your gauge from corroding South...

Also try ebay and McMaster Carr
In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...
