FFDM-1 Fuel Flow Differential Model
Just had mine installed a few weeks ago. The factory preset K factor didnt match my aircraft but after a few few flights and calibrations it registers withing .3 of a gallon over 4 hours of flight. It should even get better with a few more tanks of fuel. This meter could be a real life saver!
