Fuel tank

From different locations to clever fuel gauges

HM14 / Jim Bruton

Jim did surprise me with some of his ideas and here he did it again. If he did not invent it, credits to the inventor. Anyway ... clever idea!
How to know how much fuel you still have in a fuel tank you cannot see is sometimes a trouble. Jim Bruton has his fuel tank in the front wing. But here is a idea i like a lot. Just place a tube at the bottom. Use a floater with a stick connected to it. Slide the stick inside the tube. If the stick is hardly visible in the tube, you have a full tank. If the stick is fully visible in the tank, land land land land!! That red dot on the stick is a good idea too.
