If you use an EFIS to process the float data (I use a GRT HX) it can be amazingly accurate. You need to input a calibration table. Plus, the efis will do a little averaging so you donít see any sloshing. You canít measure the top few gallons due to wing dihedral but otherwise it compares really well with my fuel flow measurement.
