Gauge: fuel oil used

In an effort to have as accurate data as possible (to truly know what changes saved or cost me fuel) I would like to add a fuel oil gauge between my tank and burner.  Along with accumulated run time (hour meter) I hope to be able to gather useful information and minimize speculation. 

Does anyone have a suggestion for such a gauge (if one is even made) or does anybody know of a gauge that could safely be used for such a purpose?  Mechanical is preferred.

My main reason for this is that after one or two seasons of use, to gather a base line, I intend to convert my system back into a vacuum system (it was originally a Trane vapor/vacuum system) and want to really know if I have saved any fuel and if so, how much, versus cost of material for the conversion.

Thank you,
