Description

We found that it was extremely hard finding items for the Australian market (European as well) in metric.  Dipping your tanks using a wooden dowl or buying a plastic gauge from the USA which indicated in Gallons were only the options... so we came up with a "AUSDip..Dip Stick" in Litres designed specifically for your Plane.

  • We will make them to order for your specific type of aircraft, GA, experimental/Home Built.
  • We can also do them in GALLONS if requested.
  • Rounded edges so no damage to Bladders
  • Very long Bright Orange Sash that can be hooked if you drop it in your tank!
  • You will be able to provide us exact measurements of indicators on your current "Dip Stick" and we will make one to your requests.
  • www.ausdip.com.au   

Also I encourage any feedback as well... yes we know the web site is clunky and getting the information... 🙂

I prefer the ones that are T-shaped. If the cross bar of the T rests on the wing, you don't have to worry about if the bottom of the dipstick is on the actual bottom of the tank.

hi

Hi

I have a Jabiru 170. What do I need to do before you can supply a suitable dipstick?

I don’t have any dipstick at present.

Thanks

Hi roscoe,

I have spoken with Jabiru in Brisbane (I think it was) and they seem to think it was tooo hard.  I dont know the Jab tanks, will look at one next week in one of the hangars at home.  I would assume you could simply obtain a piece pf wood, ruler etc and measure as you place fuel in..... 10 litres take a reading eg 20cm, 15 litre mark =28cm, 25 litre = 44cm etc. and simply provide those measurements to me.

Im not sure if its as simple as that in the Jab Tanks ??

hi 

   not sure what material you are using but instead of a strip of material  see if you can access someone with a CNC cutter / laser cutter/ even 3-D printer & get a qty of blanks from a sheet of material 

 then customise to customer requirements

Hi Lyle,  we actually customise to your plane, rather then one size fits all.   You know then its correct when you dip.  I have had one guy order his 3rd one as he keeps loosing them :)  Must leave it on his wing or something.  But all he does is send me an email and i print his aircraft "dipper"  he has it within a few days.

My preference is to do one that you have checked and you are happy that the readings will be correct.

I should get a couple, just need to sort out the data. Bottom of the dipstick is not zero. Super Decathlon tanks are different left and right so would need different scales on either side of the stick.

 

Don't need the sash - will define the length of stick such that it is impossible to drop in the tank.

Hi djpacro,

Can easily do one for "port" and "Starboard" sides on the one dipper and depending on the length..???  It comes with a sash and you can take off if you like.

We don't do a one size fits all.....  when your talking about fuel then i feel its important to be pretty spot on...

If I can help then please let me know.
