Dayble Posted November 12, 2008 Share Posted November 12, 2008 Hi all, Anyone made a fuel dip stick for j170/j230 wings ? Was flying a j170 and after a couple of hours, saw the fuel guages showing very low and the EFIS going from 0 to 20 Lt, sometimes just sitting on 0 or 4 for 10 seconds at a time... so we landed. ( Thanks Lilydale ! ) On the ground, the reading stabilized at 28 lt. I put a stick into each wing and got 1/2 an inch in one and none in the other, ( although you could hear it sloshing around ) So i put a nother 40 in just to be sure... When i picked up the plane it read 90 lt and that tallied with the paperwork, but who knows ? Unless you put the fuel in yourself, its hard to trust the guages and efis.... So maybe i will make a simple stick with markings like used on the Cessna's ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
