I have been trying out the P-40E in the sim but for the live of me I can't find the fuel gauge. Any tips were it is located in the cockpit?

It's the round gauge on the floor between the stick and the right rudder pedal. Unfortunately it's extremely difficult to read, and I don't think it's even functional.

Your best bet is to do tests so you know hoe long you can fly on 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% fuel (and with the extra fuel tank). I use 50% fuel when online, and I've never run out of fuel. I always get shot down before my tanks are empty. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Offline I'd fill her up with 100% just to be sure.

There is a low-fuel light labeled "SIO" also.
