Like controls, gauges also come in a variety of styles, including analog and digital versions. An analog gauge is extremely basic. What you get is essentially a pointer and scale that tells speed, RPM, trim, or fuel level. These gauges are connected to the engine by wires.
Digital gauges are more desirable to some people because the LCD screens on some models allow for all features to be displayed at once or one at a time. In other words, you can have access to all the engine’s vitals with just a touch of the button. Whether you’re old school or new school, it’s important to make sure your gauges are in good working order. Whenever you replace your engine’s two cycle oil be sure to check your gauges and other equipment.
