Screwdriver tip doesn’t work on my airplane
It works as far as sampling fuel, but the screwdriver tip will not work on the cowling latches on my airplane. Never had that problem before with other testers I’ve owned.

Works, but can be a pain
The screwdriver head fell off and was lost within the first month of use. Also, the metal rod is just a tad short for a couple of the drains under the 172's.

Doesn't show blue!
Great design, and the only narrow tester with a metal rod, but as others have commented, USELESS since shows 100LL as clear when the cheap cup with metal shows the correct blue.

I don't pre-flight without it
Very small and gets the job done and doesn't take up too much space at all in the flight bag.

Blue shows as clear
Bought this because I wanted a tester with a metal pole. Everything works as expected, but for some unknown reason my 100LL fuels does not show as blue in this tester. Before anyone says I had water, I drained from the same tanks using to other testers first and they clearly show blue. Tries it many times always with same result. I can’t risk trying to determine whether I have water or a faulty tester before each flight so sticking to the gats jar I also have.

Great product
It works perfectly. I have bought over 5 different types of fuel testers however none of the ones I had purchased had worked on the DA-20. I was extremely happy when this one worked.

What is the spread on this tester? Octane lowest to highest range? and at what increments?
Joe S on Oct 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This tester only is for draining fuel from aircraft tanks and checking for water- water will sink to bottom. It does not measure octane levels. The screwdriver end is strictly a convenience that is probably not used a lot.
