The Original Fuel Stop!

Never lose a plastic fuel straw gauge again!

The Fuel Stop is a simple tool that snaps onto a standard straw fuel gauge and prevents the gauge from ever slipping into the tank.

Works with FuelHawk, or any other 1/2" diameter fuel gauge tube. .

It also becomes extremely handy when it's necessary to set the gauge on the wing, as it will stay put and not roll off to disappear into the grass or onto the pavement. The Fuel Stop can be kept separately in your pilot bag to quickly snap onto a gauge that comes with a rental aircraft, or kept permanently installed in your own aircraft for regular use. The Fuel Stop is also shaped like a set of red pilot wings which makes finding the gauge in your pilot bag or aircraft seat pocket a snap.

Have you ever lost a plastic fuel gauge when checking the available fuel in your aircraft? Has it slipped into the tank? Rolled off the wing and then disappeared onto the ground? These are very common occurrences that most pilots don't brag about, but it happens all the time. The Fuel Stop has talked to mechanics that routinely pull them out of aircraft gas tanks. So why take a chance? The Fuel Stop is the cheapest insurance you will ever buy.

Just snap it on and relax. The Fuel Stop also acts as a grip to make handling and checking fuel easier. It's also shaped like a set of pilot's wings that, when installed, makes finding the gauge in the aircraft seat back pocket or your flight bag easy. Add one to your pilot bag of tricks today!

Fit my fuel straw perfectly. No more fear of dropping in the tank or rolling off the wing.

An absolute must have. Makes finding the dipstick in the seat pocket much easier, and no more accidentally dropping it into the tank

A great add-on for the Fuelhawk fuel gauge. Snapped on with a good solid grip. No slipping. Definitely helps you keep a good grip on the fuel gauge and it wont roll away when you set it down on a wing.

Works as advertised, using it on my aircraft that is rented out through a club. Wont have any more renters dropping Fuelhawks into the tank!

The days of having the winds blowing the dipstick over the wings are over. I use the 16 dipstick, so dropping it in tanks isnt a concern to me, but stop refueling just to chase the dipstick down on the tarmac is. The fuel stops side wings keep the fuel stick wherever I lay it on the wing.

Yes, Ive lost a fuel stick. Not easy to retrieve. This just makes sense. A no-brainer.

When I first saw this thing on the web, I thought it was silly--Id never lost a fuel stick into a tank, although Id heard of pilots who had. But I thought, what the heck, it could happen, and its inexpensive, so I ordered it. The very day I ordered this thing, I was preflighting, and the fuel stick slipped from my fingers because of the cold and my arthritic fingers. Fortunately it did not fall out of reach into the tank. I installed it as soon as it came, and since then I havent dropped the fuel stick again. But now I know it could happen to me, but Im prepared.

Q: Will this work with a PA28 fuel guage with OD 3/8?

No. It works with 1/2 inch tubes.
