One thing to keep in mind: The 1-wire sensors do not read accurately until they are up to temperature. Some of the fancier (and more expensive) sensors have a built in heater element.

I've liked having a dedicated gauge. A quick glance after every warmup assures me that all is well with the fuel system. Can't have too many gauges!
