Default Re: Adjusting Fuel Level in King Seeley Gauge

Thanks Duece Roadster!

Seems like I'm measuring half what I should at this point and hoped to hear similar from someone and whether they had to resort to another calibration rod.

Okay for fun:

I'm measuring half the value of fuel

ID of glass tube is ~1/8"
Distance from 1/2 to F = 1/2"

Vr = 3.1416(.1255/2)**2 X 1/2"
so additional volume required = .006136

If I use a 1/16" copper rod;

Length of rod required = .006136 / [3.1416(.0625/2)**2 = .006236/.003068 ~2"
