Fuel Pressure Gauges
GlowShift Fuel Pressure Gauges monitor the fuel pressure in your car or truck’s engine to prevent damage to the fuel pump and injectors. GlowShift offers a variety of fuel pressure gauges that deliver incredibly accurate analog or digital readings up to 100 PSI. These gauges come complete with everything required for installation including Fuel Pressure Sensors, Wiring Harnesses, Hardware and more. Automotive Fuel Pressure Gauges can be a great diagnostic tool for keeping an eye on your fuel system to ensure it is running at peak performance levels.

Why Do I Need A Fuel Pressure Gauge?
An electric fuel pressure gauge helps you maintain proper fuel pressure levels in your car or truck. By monitoring fuel pressure, you can make sure the fuel pump and regulator are functioning properly and that you’re getting the correct amount of pressure on a wide open throttle. Assuring the proper flow of fuel pressure to the injectors will also ensure that the injectors aren’t damaged. If the fuel pressure is off it can cause injection pump failure and may even cause engine failure. GlowShift has two fuel pressure gauge kits available, with ranges from 0 to 30 PSI and 0 to 100 PSI. A metric fuel pressure gauge is also available that reads from 0 to 7.0 BAR. If fuel pressure levels are off, the result can be misfiring, reduced performance, lower fuel economy and more.
Symptoms of Low/High Fuel Pressure
Proper Fuel Pressure is vital for optimal engine operation and performance. Low fuel pressure can result in rough idling, poor performance and decreased fuel economy. High fuel pressure, when more fuel is pushed through the injectors than is required, results in a rich air to fuel ratio. A rich air to fuel ratio causes black exhaust and high emissions which can overheat and cause damage to your fuel system. If the fuel regulator is not returning the proper amount of fuel, the result may be higher than normal fuel pressure. Installing a truck or car Fuel Pressure Gauge allows you to monitor low and high pressure to prevent any damage to your fuel system.
30PSI VS 100PSI GlowShift Fuel Pressure Gauges
A 30 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge is ideal for any diesel truck that is running lower fuel pressure levels. Cummins engines, for example, are an optimal fit for installing the 30 PSI GM Fuel Pressure Gauge. This gauge will keep you alerted if the pressure level is too low which could result in damage leading to an overall loss in horsepower. A Power Stroke diesel would be best suited with a 100 PSI Fuel Pressure Gauge. This gauge is made specifically for vehicles that run higher fuel pressure levels such as racing applications or work applications like trucks that are covering long distances and towing heavy cargo. A 100 PSI GM Fuel Pressure Gauge is also the recommended version for vehicles with a fuel injected gas engine. You can choose between several different GlowShift analog and digital Fuel Pressure Gauge styles to find the right look for your car or truck.
How to Install a GlowShift Fuel Pressure Gauge Kit
Each GlowShift Fuel Pressure Gauge comes with everything you need for installation. The included 1/8-27 Electronic Fuel Pressure Sensor can be installed to your fuel filter housing, fuel pump, or fuel rail: installation will vary by application and may require additional threading adapters. A Sensor Harness is included that runs from the sensor location and easily clips into the back of the gauge. The Power Harness includes wiring for Constant, Switched, Ground sources and more and also easily clips into the back of the GM fuel pressure gauge. There is a mounting bracket with mounting hardware if you choose to install the gauge without a gauge pod. The included gauge visor will help block out any sun glare while you’re taking readings. The installation instructions provided will walk you through every step of the entire process.
