Super easy to use. Perfect for those times where you don't know how much fuel you need at those self serve fuel stations.

Great help with knowing fuel level
It is easy to use and read. I did add a cross bar to keep from dropping it in the tank. Adding a bit more security knowing how much fuel we really have.

Needs a gripping element close to the top.
I wrapped a rubber band, wrapped several times around the gauge near the top. That makes it much easier to hold onto when inserting it into the wind tanks. Based on experience with reusable medical syringes printed with ink on the outside, I wonder how long until the fuel dissolves the markings on the gauge such that it becomes unreadable. That's a question for the future. But overall, it is what I expected. I have used this type of gauge in the past. So same-O same-O.

Disappointed
Got this product as a back-up. Upon removal the fuel level quickly drains out and its impossible to get an accurate reading. Yes, I have my finger securely over the hole. Never had this problem in chemistry class. Very disappointed.

Simple and effective
Does what it should, comes in handy for student pilots as well as certified pilots. Not all charterers have those, and it doesn't take up much space in you bag - buy it! ;-)

Just what I needed.
For a hight challenged person such as myself, 5'3"tall, it's perfect. Trying to find the fuel level while pumping gas is much easier without stretching.

Pros: This is great for short people like me who can not see into the tanks of high wing aircraft. I take a rubber band and put a popsicle stick on the top to make a "T". This prevents the fuel stick from possiblly falling into the tank.

will this work properly on an older Cessna 172 with the 42 Gallon, 38 Gallon total usable tanks?
Kelley W on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it will not. I would recommend one of our universal fuel gauges.
Hi, is this work with 28 gallons tank for C172R from 1999?
Peter S on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The item pictured us used with 172 with 26.5 usable per tank. We also carry item 5304 which is a universal fuel gauge that the user calibrates.
