Motometer 2 in 1

RAREST OF THE RARE

Motometer 2 in 1 instrument

In August 1957, the VW Beetle received a major face-lift. The Oval Window model was just over 4 years old at this point. But still, the good people at VW did not include a fuel gauge in the new dashboard. They continued to employ the reserve fuel gauge in the new dashboard. They continued to employ the reserve fuel tap located on the front bulkhead. This left the market open to accessory manufactures to make Beetles owner lives easier. Besides the well known Dehne company (they made the rare thermometer-style petrol gauges) there was also Motometer who took gauge design to a whole new level. Their kit came with an oil temperature sender that was to be installed between the engine case and the existing oil pressure sender. To fit the instrument you simply installed the backing plate supplied with it on the right-hand side of the speedo, and added the fuel level sender to the tank. Motometer called it a 2-in-1 instrument, and later they even made it into a 3-in-1 when the red warning light would also wars of low amperage in the Electrical system. on 31st July 1961, Volkswagen at last fitted their own fuel gauges, and kits like this became obsolete.
