• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Fuel probe installation

I'm new to this forum and have been building an Acroduster Too for a long time. I am installing the instruments and engine controls. Right now I am planning to install a capacitance probe into my main tank. It is an 'inverted' tank so there is a baffle 14" from the top. There is 6" under the baffle. How do I measure all of the fuel? Can the probe be passed through the baffle in order to get to the bottom? A hole would need to be drilled through the baffle. What are some of your thoughts out there. How are the rest of you measuring all of your fuel?I posted this question on the Starduster boards a couple of days ago and haven't had one response. Maybe everyone is on vacation!!RonEdited by: Ronboone
