    I wouldn't think a high output LED would be necessary for the low fuel light. You just want a light to come on... not blind you.
    Thanks Keith that's the answer I'm looking for, I just thought a L.E.D. would do a better job since the light seems to be so dim, it would be great to have it bright, not earlier. It's not bright at all in the day time I know I'm not clear some times, when i explain some things, but you understood me,.. thanks

    to everyone else: sorry, I wasn't clear...

    It starts Dim and gets Brighter the lower the fuel gets.

    o.k. I just wanted to see it now because I'm doing the l.e.d. conversion, that way I know which bulb to use, I thought I'd put a brighter one, since I think it's dim, especially in the day time, I'll probaly regret the l.e.d.

    Well, LED's don't dim quite the same way, so it might not turn on at all until later...
