Gas cap gauge with float for 06 Rhino 450

Does anyone know if somebody makes a generic cap with a gauge built in that will just screw right into the tank for a 2006 450 Rhino? I just bought it, it has a digital dash installed, but know indicators for fuel level. I have seen posts where you can drill a hole in the tank and add a sending unit along with a gauge, but I would think there would be an easier solution.

idk. we have a í11 700cc. but i donít think you could have like a flot on the gas cab. because of the bend in the filler neck. their should be a way to hook a gauge up to the digital dash. but iím not sure.

The 450 tank appears to be a straight shot in. I did find a viewing slot under the passenger seat. Unfortunately, I think you need x-ray vision to see the gas level! It would also be super convenient for your passenger to stand on their head when your trail riding to tell you that your getting low on gas! What was Yamaha thinking??? Thanks for your info. I was just hoping maybe someone has come up with an easier way then tearing out the tank, cutting holes, and adding sending units and gauges.
