This meter appears to be well made and I have had good luck from Fill-Rite in the past. I am using it on a diesel fuel transfer tank. This fuel meter works with diesel fuel, gasolines, kerosene, mineral spirits, stoddard solvents and heptane. It measures in gallons and tenths. It has one master meter that keeps up with total gallons and second meter that is resettable by turn the wheel on the side. The master meter can be reset and this unit can be recalibrated if it ever gets off. It comes with instructions on how to do both. Mine came with about 30 gallons on the meter already but that was not a real problem for me. It also came with some teflon tape and the connectors but if you have a fuel filter then I recommend you have some extra elbows and connectors handy so that you can plumb around it and make it work.
We keep a log book by ours and we write down the date, user, starting total, ending total and the total gallons pumped. If there is a skipped entry where the starting total does not match the last ending total we ask the person to circle there start number to bring our attention to it. It appears to be very accurate. It helps you to keep record on who has used the tank but also to help make sure that you are not getting shorted by the fuel deliverer which is very common in our area. The fact that you have a meter on your tank is a signal to the fuel deliverer that you are on top of things and encourages them to put in what they charge you for. With the cost of diesel fuel now it does not take long for the meter to pay for itself. It also helps you to know when it is time to order again and keeps you from sucking up that last gallon from your tank that has all of the water, rust, dirt and anything else that is sitting on the bottom of your tank in it. By the way, tilt your tank where your knozzle end is on the high side so you do not suck up the water,dirt, trash etc, at the bottom of your tank.
Update 2019: 4 years and still going strong.

The total gallon’s indicator had 25 + gallons displayed. Took front plastic face plate off and carefully reset the dials to 00000.0. The instruction/info pamphlet should tell you how to reset the total gallons used.

Very solid meter. Only con is the face plate is plastic so once it starts to degrade and crack you can’t see the numbers well. Especially the total meter at the bottom.
