,[PIC]: How to measure level of liquids and sense relativehumidity?

Yeah, that's pretty much what I had in mind. Although I am not a
thermal engineer, it seems to me there will generally be a temperature
difference between the fluid, now matter what it is, and the air
above it - due to thermal inertia - so a heater may not be required.
I'd have to try this to see how it would work. It might work with
3 thermistors this way - one at the bottom [in the fluid], one at the
top [out of the fluid], both of which act as references, and one in
between to do the actual weighted measurement - all bonded to the same

For production stuff, I think most companies would want to go with
as few parts as they could get away with --> costs, plus reliability
