matt, i just installed Autometers pro comp ultra lite fuel pressure gauge in my truck. It is an electrical gauge and is a VERY easy install. I bought mine from jegs for about 237 bucks. I have it mounted in my A pillar. Comes with light, sending unit and all other wiring.



Its their 0-30 PSI gauge. PM me for a link if needed

What year is your truck. 02 could be an ECM issue, thats the year they went to fake oil press. gauges. Its probably a bad sending unit, or you gauge itself is shot. As for the Fuel press. You wouldn't run fuel directlt to the gauge unless mounted externally. You can run an isolator though which will let you run the gauge in the cab, and not pay the price of an electronic gauge. For mounting, is your truck an auto or a manual? The autos have a nice little cubby hole that you can put a block off plate and a gauge in, which still allows room for 3 other ones on the pillar. If you have a manual, you can mount all 3 on the pillar.

I recently installed a new B&M Blackout series electric fuel pressure gauge. I got mine new from a store on Ebay for about $85. They have also recently been advertised in Diesel Power.
