Depends on the tank. You should find a brass plate on the tank (often part of the fill / outlet assembly) with the level sensor. It looks like a small dial with a green and a black wire coming out. It is controlled by a magnet inside the tank the magnetic field of which passes through the brass and turns the small dial.

It is very unlikely to be on the bottom. It should be on the top somewhere.

The sender is not inside the tank. It is on the outside. Perhaps you have something unusual (in which case a photo or two of the tank would be good), but all the ones I have seen have a sender like shown above, wired to the gauge / line of LED's / whatever is at the front.

You won't have any wires coming from inside the tank!

hi chris im confused as the link above only shows anologe gauges .not the gas leval sensor that i assume measures the gas in the tank .which then shows on the display of the switch ( row of leds ) .my tank is a round one that fits in the spare well carrierr.

Ah, yes, sorry, perhaps I should clarify. That thing in the picture is a sensor & gauge. Because it's mounted on the tank, inside the airtight box, you can't see it, so it is only really used for it's sensor function. The wires then go off to your digital row of lights which translate the analogue signal from that sensor into the row of lights.

So I am 90% sure you will have one of those on the tank somewhere, probably next to the point where the fill / exit pipes join the tank.
