What's the difference between an ultrasonic and radar level transmitter?

My company has a new application, and we need to know the best principle for the level measurement. It's pretty simple, and I saw some references for ultrasonic level transmitters, but I've heard that we can use a radar as well. Which one should I choose?

What's the best meter for diesel flow measurement?

Hey, I need the right flow meter - one with at least 0.75 percent accuracy - for an application. Could you help us? The pipe is 1" and the product is diesel, with the maximum temperature 40C, pressure 6 kg/cm2, and flow 3 m3/hr. We're using analog communication. Any ideas?
