Which are the most accurate? If theres any differance at all.
Im looking to plumb in an oil pressure gauge, i already use oil temp water temp that are mechanical jap gauges.
Electrical is obviously easier to fit as its easier to route wires than a cappilary.
Are there any obvious advantages in using them apart from the price?

Temp gauges are always electrical, you wouldnt get correct readings off the gauges themselves (if mechanical) due to the length of pipes.
One thing i have personally always had against mechanical pressure gauges is that you have to feed the pressure/fluid into the car/gauge.
That leaves the whole pipe from the source open to poss interference and leaks and more importantly for me, if there are any leaks at the gauge end the fluid is gonna end up in your car.

Cheers
