Exactly as pictured. Much better to use than the small fuel testers with no filter.
I pour the fuel back in the tank and leave it set out while I do the rest of my preflight to allow it to dry out completely before I put it back in my bag.
Shipped quickly as well.

Overall it’s a good product. If your fuel drain is recessed more than about a half inch you will have trouble draining fuel as I did. I put a small tube on it to extend its reach and now it works fine. Which the maker had thought of that and included an extension tube. I do like the screen and pour back is good, not messy.

Perfect Tester
The perfect Fuel Tester. It has a wide diameter so that the fuel doesn't spill down your hand, and it has a large overall capacity so that you can check multiple sample points in a row without having to empty the jar. Well constructed and convenient to use.

Great tool
This tool is the best way to test your fuel, hands down.
The best part is the filter, so you can pour the fuel sample back in the tanks, rather than dumping it and polluting the soil.

I heard the new ones are flimsy unlike the old. Any views?
Varel F on May 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I know what you mean - the clear plastic bottle used to be firmer material, the new one is definitely less firm. However, while a softer plastic container needs to be handled with a bit more care it's also much less prone to break if it accidentally falls onto the tarmac.
What is the country of origin?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Manufactured in the USA.
