The fuel gauge on my 4905 is a length of rubber old garden hose. 

Put a long bolt (held by a worm clamp) into the end of the hose that goes to the bottom of the fuel tank.  I can hear the bolt tap the bottom of the tank when it hits bottom.  I keep meaning to try and figure out how many gallons 1" of fuel on the hose represents.......oh well, maybe one of these days when I run out of other projects on the bus.

Chris,
  How many gallons 1" represents?  The buffalo tanks are about 31" tall & come in 2 sizes, 165 gal and 140 gal.  If your tank goes all the way to the driver's side it's a 165 gallon, the 140 stops about a foot short of the left side.  4.5 gallons/ inch for the 140 gal tank & 5.3 gallons / inch for the 165.
Regards
