just a word to Martin's suggestion: I have the internal fuel sensor in my
sump tank and I do not recommend it. It is a long lever that hangs down
when the level goes below it and swims when immersed. In my sumptank (RG
Elite) I will not be able to take it out unless the tank is full or I take
the tank out.

Besides it shows the low fuel warning all the time. No, there is no short
outside the tank and inside - well, see above.
