Fuel Pressure Gauges...Electronic or Mechanical

Like the title says, which would be the best way to monitor fuel pressure? mechanical gauge or electronic. I'm not too keen on messing with an isolator and all that crap that comes with a mechanical gauge but it does give you real time pressure measurements. Just curious about the accuracy of the electronic ones. thoughts?

Bad part about a mech. is it has to go outside the truck. The few electronic gauges (autometer) I have been around are pretty accurate.

Electric. They are worth the extra money over the mechanical.

Re: Fuel Pressure Gauges...Electronic or Mechanical

I can get you an autometer if you want and I would only suggest going with an electric.
