What material is the fuel tank made out of? Excessive fuel sloshing could indicate that the tank needs additional baffle plates.

Is it approx. a 90L Tank? I plugged those numbers in and got this:

No. of baffles   3
Baffle Spacing   236mm
Pin                 Yes
Pin Length   985mm
Vertical Rib Spacing   180mm

This guys seem to offer a very good range of senders and might be able to guide you better

Shaft type senders tend to be the most accurate but the ultrasonic senders are very expensive.

Buzu by partitioning the tank you mean by actually creating vertical partitions that eliminate or reduce the rolling movement at sea for diesel?

I had some inaccurate readings especially when the sea is rough and decided to remove the fuel sender for this reason. My diesel tank has no partitioning but I believe with vertical partitioning i could greatly enhance the readings.

We will try one of the senders that skip sent in the link above but we are still waiting for the  electrition to tell us which one is good for us since we do not know anything about senders and we are also considering doing more partitions to the tank

I have 2 large tanks and don't have any issues with fuel level. I am not sure which fuel sender is installed though (I can check if you want - or call PeteCraft directly).
However I am using the engine CPU to get the reading and noticed that there is a long delay (about 3mins) when filling the tanks to show on the display. So this may be intentional to compensate for the boat rolling etc.
