Oh my.  Do you really want to pay for something like this?  It's not going
to be cheap.  

With all the mechanical binding from the filler pipe, fuel lines, and the
fuel pump electrical connector, the vibration from the  fuel pump and the
road, I don't know that it would be significantly more accurate than a
linearized float sensor.
