Many of these sensors are available with RS-232 or RS-485 options. RS-485 is preferred because you can chain multiple fuel sensors and support for longer wires. Also it keeps the RS-232 port free which is a convenience for Lua code changes and debug. You can use the RS-232 port if that’s desirable. For new sensor installations, analog interfaces should be avoided as the measurement quality is not going to be as good; and you can’t read the fuel tank temperature at the same time.

There are also fuel level monitoring options via OBD-II interfaces and the J1939 Agent. Either one may be a viable option depending on the vehicle.
