Yeah, not much helps on ice besides chains or studs. I have seen 4x4s spinning all 4 wheels on flat icy parking lots.
 
ACME tanks have a float in them. I believe its magnetically coupled to the gauge, but it may be a thru tank float. Not 100% sure.
The gauge just have a 0-90ohm sensor in it. I am sure its not real accurate, but close. My tank is big enough I fill it every couple years.

Ah thats really cool. Just did a bit of research. Looks like a bunch of horizontal tanks have built in gauges that rotate a magnet to move the indicator arm. There are sending units like that, that just snap onto existing, non electric gauges.
