I can't get twisted around far enough. I mean, I can see it, but not well enough to get more than a rough approximation of what half or quarter of the range it might be indicating. And with two much more accurate indicators in front of me, I haven't really tried that hard.

Calibrated at same time of Dynon calibration. The float arm was adjusted to provide accurate low level indication. I can quickly cross check Dynon and time in flight.

I cut a paperboard blank to mark indicators while filling tank then sent to AircraftEngravers.net to match the panel overlays. .010 lexan reverse engraved. Any color combination you desire.

Can you reference job or invoice # so I can contact them and not have to re-invent the wheel... so to speak?

Unable to locate specific invoice for this particular order. I do have two other invoices that indicate customer# of V537-XX with job number -01 & -02. I would assume the fuel tank placard would be either -03 or -04. Be aware that if ordered, your placement of gallon indicators may need adjustment for accuracy related to float arm angle. Also, the invoices I have show .020 lexan, not .010 as stated in previous post.

Thanks Larry. I have contacted Engravers.net and asked them if they can search their job files for this fuel placard.

I'll post price when I hear back from them...

Would they have the fuel gage indicator on file I could order? For gross indications!
