there isnt a gauge so if you really wanted to check all i could see is if you look behind the front bumper (and if its the 2,2 sedan like mine) it should be on the right side. its a huge tank for just washer fluid,lol,ive put a gallon and a half of fluid in and it still wasnt full.

well if you take out the black plastic inserts on the front there are holes there precut for fogs,and you basically bolt them up where u can and then ust use the wiring kit they should give you with the fogs and hook it up. thats pretty much what i did,but watch out for gettin too big of fogs,i made that mistake and ended up having to put them in a different place where they ended up getting hit and shorting out. so i dont even have fogs anymore,simply cause i dont have money to go out and get smaller ones,and when you go to bolt them up you might have to install something around there cause its hard to find a spot to bolt them into,i used like a 2x4 and bolted that to the plastic from unerneath and bolted the fogs into that behind there,(but it didnt look to good cause it wasnt very flush with the body cause i had to have them alittle farback cause they were slightly too big
