DipStick Features

Easy to use - Reading your fuel levels made simple
With DipStick you will stop guessing your fuel levels. Insert DipStick into the fuel filler neck until it touches the bottom. Remove DipStick to read fuel level. Shake to dry. Done! Watch the video tutorial.
Made from durable MDF and exclusively refined
Our DipSticks are solely made from MDF, refined with boiled linseed oil. The product is durable against typical fuels when properly used.
Super flat and extra lightweight - fit's to your pilot bag
Good pilots travel decluttered and well organized. The DipStick is light as a feather and optimized to fit easily in any Letter or DIN A4-sized folder or pilot bag. Try that with a plastic tube!
Dry in seconds - Stow it right after usage
AvGas is very volatile. Just shake the DipStick through the air after usage for a couple of seconds. MoGas and Jet fuel will take a few seconds more to dry.

Questions about the DipSticks

Which DipStick is suitable for my aircraft?
We offer pre-scaled DipSticks for different types of aircraft. Make sure the scale corresponds with your type of aircraft. Every aircraft is different. Consult your Pilot Operating Handbook.
My aircraft model is missing. How can I get a pre-scaled DipStick for it?
Some types of aircraft are rare or the individual aircrafts of a type show significant differences regarding the fuel tanks. Just drop us a message, we will check if we could add your model to our product line. Already discovered our Universal Dipstick? Create your own scale, just for your aircraft.
What is the advantage over plastic fuel gauges like Fuel Finger or Fuel Hawk?
DipSticks are from wood. They won't crack or break like acryl if you drop them. Also there is no tube that may cause contamination of your fuel. DipSticks are flat, light weight and will easily fit in any Letter or DIN A4 size bag or folder.

I live in a country outside the European Union. Why can I only order 8 articles at a time?
Your order is subject to a CN22 customs declaration. Large volume orders will need an individual CN23 customs declaration form. Just drop us a message, and we are ready to go.
