And you won't! That's the whole idea.

Jeff..for the benefit of those who may want to do the same thing but don't know how, could you share the procedure for adjusting the gauges.

Sheesh! That's too complicated for me--I'm a simple man.

I put about ten gallons in each tank and messed with the adjustments (angle and location on the rod) until they just said "E".
