I am trying to develop a Fuel level monitoring data aquisition system, and therefore i am selecting MPX2053 and similar sensors for upto 4 meters of fuel height in tank.


What i want to know is, are these differential pressure sensors suited to be used with Diesel and/or Petro fuels ?


If not, can you suggest which alternate sensors or methods i may use for my application ?


One option was to use a Stainless steel based Differential pressure Transmitter (4 to 20 mA output) and connect it to my system. This, is a ready built solution but is very costly compared to discrete sensors based system. Therefore i am prefering to use sensors from NXP / Freescale, as i have had previous experiecne with the same in a different application.


Thank you.
