MG MGA - fuel gauge early 1500

does anyone have for sale such a fuel gauge ?

This is the version of the very early 1500. The difference are the "dots" instead of the rectangular spots on the letters "E" "1/2" and "F" for later type.

Your oil/temp gauge looks different as well.

I know it , but I have the oil and water gauge already new in the early style!

Even the rev-counter and speedometer are new (early style)!

The only instrument missing is the fuel gauge.

Please excuse me for highjacking this thread, but I would like to ask Delicio if the key/ignition lock shown in the picture is coded FA or FP?
Thank you.
James Johanski


I'm sorry, but the picture of the car is not my own car. I can't tell.

Do you need an ignition lock?

Send me a PM.

Hi Giovanni.

What you need to search for is the Jaeger number printed on the face.

I'm not entirely sure if but it appears from Barney site above your looking for:

FG 2530/25

Barney has a photo here but I can't read the number:

You may have to contact one of the UK gauge fixing places and ask them if they can supply a new face onto an existing more common later fuel gauge.

Hope this helps

Mark Hester

Hello Mark,

Thank you for your advise. I'll contact Barney to know more.
