Fuel level sensor Q???

I'm looking at a Fuel Cell for my car and it states the sending unit is 0 ohms empty and 90 ohms full. Will this work with the stock gauges or do I need to do some wiring wizardry?

the stock sending unit operates at about 4Ω full and 84Ω empty. i'm guessing you could switch the wires around and hook them up to the stock gauge, the reading would be close but i'd look into an aftermarket gauge intended to work with that sending unit to be exact.

I'll see if I can retrofit a stock sending unit into the cell then. My entire goal is to limit the gauges I need visable in the car so I'm willing to do the work to make it work with the stock gauges.
