I've been looking for one of these for a while. I don't mean a gauge on the bottle, but one that would be inside the cabin. Also, how would that work? Would it be an electrical signal or a mechanical signal? Hopefully not mechanical because that would be scary as shit lol.

IDK but I put an oil pressure gauge on my bottle thinking the same thing and it exploded. LOL shop owner was pissed off.

Typical oil pressure gauges are good up to 200 psi. For nitrous you will need about 900-1000 psi gauges.

I will keep an eye on this, because I want one of these too.

I would prefer to have a gauge. Some cruise nights we will be driving for 1-2 hours straight, no stop bagging the cars. If I have nitrous running with no stopping, countless runs with different cars I will need to make sure the pressure is fine.

I figure having a gauge in the cabin is a good idea. I can monitor nitrous pressure, my fuel pressure, and a bottle heater. Those should help maintain pressure. Purge valve just to clear the lines every now and then.

ya, it's electrical so i am sure that is where it comes from.
I am thinking about adding one to my dash also. Looking in the rear of the car is a pain everytime I want to see what my pressure is

Im not going to bother with an electrical gauge. Im going to get a bottle gauge. Electrical gauges are just too much $$$$.

Right now I have no gauge, and Im going to bet that the guy didnt fill it all the way.

I think that it takes like 2 and half minutes to empty a bottle.
