	This is why, as pointed out earlier, no engine is needed to 
test the fuel gauge/sender.

	Now he tells me already!  This is why mine stuck at 1/4 
evoking our recent strand ' fuel gauge unreliability'.

	We seem to have drafted a warning not to trust these gauges 
-  keep a record of odo at last fill, and if nec'y sub-fill volumes.


	Now what can we learn please about this "vibrator"?  I don't 
dare to search on that term :-[  - can we not find a different name? 
:-D
