Works well & very durable.
I really didn’t need the 16” version. 12” would have been perfect for my 1960 Cessna 210A. Works well.

I would assume that this tool will be very effective, once calibrated. I received the Fuel Gage to find that calibration is a tedious process starting with an empty fuel tank. Must be a better way!!

Works great on my PA24-260C and that is all I can say, but the website makes me write at least 50 characters even if there is not that much to say.

Pros: Can be calibrated to match any plane and any fuel tank within the 16 inch length limit. The calibration method is clearly described in the instructions and does not take that long. Cons: You do have to calibrate it first. Works well. They have got the internal diameter just right for getting an accurate reading first time every time.

Own a Piper PA28-180 with 25 gallon tanks, will this gauge work?????
S W on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If I remember correctly, the Cherokee models all had tabs in the fuel tanks for partial tank use. These tabs plus the knowledge of what's in the tank when it's full makes it very easy to calibrate the gauge. It comes with very good instructions on how to do that. Fill it to the tabs and mark where the fuel level is in the tube and then mark it again where the fuel level is in the tube with full tanks.
Is this long enough for Cessna 172 long range tank or should I go with XL one? I rent different model year 172 so I need universal one instead of the one only for the newest 172 with 53 gallons.

BEST ANSWER: I fly PIper Warriors and the 11 inch works well for them. As long as the tube is long enough to reach the bottom of the tank you are flying and you set up a chart for that aircraft you should be good to go .
Universal vs. Universal XL.
Are they both 0-14 units long?
If so, then say 5 units of fuel is different for each fuel stick.
JoshZ on Jun 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The unit would be different for each straw. The item contains a calibration card.
Any experience using this with a DA40?
chili4way on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, but I use it with a pa28 235. Easy to use and calibrate.
Is this gauge marked in inches?
Aaron U on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This gauge is marked in gallons and includes the instructions to calibrate it for the specific amount of fuel that is held in the tanks.
will this gauge work with Cessna Caravan 208B Aircraft?
Megha c on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it includes directions on how to calibrate for your specific aircraft.
