FuelHawk is not the problem

  • By A Customer from Washington State on Tuesday, February 13, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: Rated only three stars, but any dipper would be a problem with my tanks. They are 15 gallons, but long and flat, only three inches deep at the filler cap. Any slight difference in leveling makes considerable difference in the FuelHawk reading.

Perfect

  • By A Customer from Newberry Springs CA USA on Wednesday, October 05, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: Works just like it should. Very accurate when you take the time to calibrate it to your aircraft.

Perfect

  • By Shawn from Coldwater MI USA on Tuesday, November 10, 2015
  • Pros: simple and easy to use
  • Review: I loved it so much, I ordered three more, one for each of my other airplanes. If you can see fuel standing in the tank when you look in the cap, this should work for your airplane. One word of caution, when handling with gloves in cold Michigan air, if you relax your grip just a little, the FuelHawk slips very quickly completely into the tank and out of sight/reach. Definitely not a product fault, certainly an operator error, hopefully sharing my mistake will help prevent others from the same dilemma.

Some Guidance on methods to calibrate would help!

  • By Scott from Montpelier VT USA on Thursday, August 21, 2014
  • Pros:
  • Review: It is fairly easy to read--the hard part is calibrating. I have tried some differnt methods and currently I move the fuel selector valve to off, then read the line, then record the number of gallons added to fill the tank. Then I deduct that number from the usable fuel so I have gallons remaining in the tank. Bladder tanks are not uniform so it isn't like an increment of one equals X number of gallons. I am still building my "data".

    The full tank level reads the number 12 on the stick, (30 gallons) but 6 is not half (15 gallons) a tank. It is about 22 gallons. This gives you better cushion in terms of fuel exhaustion, but can put you over max TOW.

Lazy approach

  • By Christopher Stamp from Rock Stream NY USA on Thursday, May 08, 2014
  • Pros: Simple to use
  • Review: Simple useful item but why the heck doesn't the manufacturer calibrate it for various commonly found tanks tanks rather than giving tedious directions for self calibrating?

A dipstick for the fuelish.

  • By David from Fenton MI USA on Monday, November 25, 2013
  • Pros: Great to be exact on fuel quantities
  • Review: Once calibrated a good product for your flight planning safety

very helpful product

  • By Mark from Bigfork MT USA on Tuesday, October 16, 2012
  • Pros: Easy to calibrate
  • Review: My fuel tanks are of an unorthodox size, which means that standard model specific gauges don't work. The calibration was simple and the handy card provided with the gauge makes it easy to determine fuel levels.
    The most challenging part of this calibration process was picking an uncrowded period at the fuel dock where I'd be afforded time to sequentially add increments of fuel without holding up other thirsty planes!
