Excellent addition to any panel.

I received the new FS450 out of the box with a non operative 231 Transducer. As usual, Aircraft Spruce passed the problem to me. I was forced to purchase a new transducer and wait for a bench check of the new/old unit. The non working unit showed up magically working after 2 weeks. JPI has a QC issue from my limited perspective. All works fine now but it seemed a bit much to get a new unit in operating condition.

Best upgrade I did for the plane. When coupled to a compatible GPS it provides a great sense of fuel quantity situational awareness. Itll let the pilot know if there is enough gas to make it to the next waypoint or not. Well worth the price.

Great little instrument. This was a plug and play no fuss replacement for a Shadin instrument that wouldnt work with a new transducer. Very user friendly menus.

This thing is worth its weight in gold! Makes leaning the engine much easier and much more accurate than 50 year old fuel gauges with bouncing needles.

One of the best STC'd add on's you can put in your aircraft. Extremely accurate fuel flow monitoring unit. Working perfect in a Robinson R44RII.

Q&A

Q: Does the JPI FS 450 GRAVITY FED (P/N: 10-00134) come with a FAA FORM 8130-3?

No, these do not come standard with an 8130-3 form. These must be requested at the time of order.

Q: Does the JPI FS 450 unit include the transducer?

Yes it does as you have to select gravity fed (231) or fuel pump (201) system.

Q: I just purchased a 1966 Piper PA28-235 with no current fuel computer system installed. What else do I need to order with the JPI FS 450 for my mechanic to install the system?

Please note that the FS 450 cannot be used as a primary fuel flow in your panel (in can be used for secondary). The JPI FS 450 comes with all the parts to install the FS 450 but other parts like tubing and connections from your fuel system need to be ordered separate. We recommend you and your mechanic review the manual on our documents tab before ordering to make sure the install is efficient.

Q: What is included with the J.P. Instruments Fuel Scan FS450? Is it compatible with a Cessna 182R?

Items included are the indicator, fire sleeve, harness, transducer and pilots guide. If you want to use it with your Cessna, you will need to use the gravity fed version (10-00134).

Q: I have a Cherokee 180 and wanted to add this to augment my fuel gauges. Can I install the FS450?

The manual describes the procedure for installing the Fuel Scan FS450 as a secondary gauge including the necessary placards you must include with the installation of the gauge.

Q: Which J.P. Instruments Fuel Scan FS 450 would work on a Cessna 150M?

For a Gravity Fed Fuel aircraft such as the Cessna 150 series you would need part number 10-00134.

Q: Does the FS450G have the flow labelled in Gal/Hr on the gauge, or is the label units/hr?

The JPI Fuel Scan FS450 is programmable to either gallons, pounds or liters.

Q: I have the EI Red Cube transducer fitted. Is that compatible with the JPI FS 450?

The recommended transducers are listed for the FS450 in the installation manual by JPI. Using another manufacturer’s transducer is not recommended or tested.

Q: Is there a wiring harness available for the FS 450 transducer to indicator?

For the fuel scan FS450, part numbers 10-00135 and 10-00134, the harness is included with the instrument.
