Sandpoint Well Project

Sandpoint Well Project

In our area, water is pretty expensive, and there is a 150% sewer charge on top as well. Also, the ground is pretty much sand except for about 6 inches of top soil that the developer puts down for the grass. The sand seems to leech the water out of the topsoil so the grass dies very quickly when it gets hot and dry in the summer. You need to water your lawn if you want it to survive – but it gets expensive quickly.

Fuel Gauge LED Project - Arctic Cat Firecat

Fuel Gauge LED Project - Arctic Cat Firecat

The Arctic Cat Firecats have a simple mechanical fuel level gauge mounting in the top of the fuel tank. The problem is that when you are driving around at night, there is no illumination on the gauge so it can't be seen. After nearly running out of fuel one night, I decided I needed to come up with something better than carrying a flashlight in my pocket to check the fuel level.
