Hi

I am using resistance type fuel sensor for getting fuel level  in the tank, the sensor gives the Percentage of fuel left in the tank. Based upon the fuel tank capacity we can get how much fuel is in the tank. But this works fine if the fuel tank is rectangular and uniform in shape, what should be done for cylindrical fuel tanks where the volume of fuel varies as the diameter of tank varies.

In opengts is there option of tank shape so that in cylindrical tank we get the  the actual fuel volume.

Please see what i mean by cylinderical tank
