Two primary features of the FP-5 are a pilot programmable low fuel alert and a pilot programmable low time to empty alert. These alerts catch your attention by blinking the low fuel LED which will turn off when acknowledged by pushing any button or switch. These alerts can be at any time from the front panel of the FP-5. By setting these alerts, the FP-5 becomes a Fuel Managing Co-Pilot, alerting you when it is time to check your fuel levels, switch tanks, compare your time to destination calculations to the FP-5 readings or any other function you need to perform.
E.I. products include all documentation and certifications
To further manage your fuel and provide safety the FP-5 displays fuel pressure in .2 PSI increments to 100 PSI. In addition it offers 1 pilot programmable Low Fuel Pressure Warning & 1 Pilot Programmable High Fuel Pressure Warning. These warnings catch your attention by blinking the H/L press. LED. These warnings are emergency warnings and can be instrumented in early problem detection.
Features include programmable K factor, programmable fuel weight, and programmable display for gal. or lbs., fuel flow to .1 gal/hr., fuel used and remaining to 1/10 of a Gallon, time to empty to one minute, fuel pressure to .2 PSI, one programmable low fuel alert, one programmable time to empty alert, one programmable high fuel pressure warning. STCD. Size: 2.5" x 2.5" x 3.65"D. 2-1/4" bezel. wt. 12 oz.

Hi, thanks for the communication. This is my second FP 5 that have been purchased from you. The first one is in service on aircraft Comp Air 7, LZ-GAA with turbine engine and has more than 700 flight hours. So thanks for the excellent devise. Capt. A. Andreev
Works great so far, mechanic had no issues installing it. it gives me a bit more peace of mind especially on long flights as my vintage Cessna fuel gauges bounce around so much. i also like how i can easily switch it to pounds to see how much weight in fuel i have on board when loading instead of guessing.
Fuel flow is spot on easy to install.eccellent customer support .the only issue that I have is the lack of free shipping in canada even though it it says free shipping
I purchased the instrument. In summer of 2013. However I never installed the instrument till summer of 2015 and followed the instructions closely to prevent transducer vibrations. Happy with the install it worked well for three summers on my float plane totaling less then 100 hours the transducer failed. After closely looking it over for loose wires or dirt I finally contacted EI which at least the replied quickly. However they refuse to give a discount on a replacement FT90. Guess things are not built to last anymore. Probably just remove the fuel flow and junk it as it’s hardly worth paying for a replacement.

After checking with the manufacture, it is not STC'd for that aircraft. The gauge is still certified but you will need a sign off on it. You can check our document tab to see the STC listing.
All FP-5 gauges do not require a functional module for basic operation. Fuel hoses, a circuit breaker, and electrical connectors are all that is needed for installation.
Yes, the FP-5 can be user programmed to display Gallons, Pounds, or Liters.
Yes. Please see the installation manual for full details on installing with two tanks.
Per EI, fuel flow only.
This unit has fuel flow and horsepower capabilities only.
Fuel pressure can be added as an option for display on the "Aux" input.
The FP-5L includes an RS232/422 interconnect, the FP-5 does not. E.I. Recommends a 1 amp fuse/circuit breaker for this installation.
It is not in the box, however, the STC document can be downloaded from the DOCUMENTS tab.
Per the manufacturer, they have not had issues with this unit interfacing to a panel mount GPS.
