Does anyone remember the capacitive plates? You know, the ones that Van's doesn't sell anymore
So here is my issue. Bought a set of second hand wings, the tanks were completed some time ago with the capacitive senders. I am attempting to calibrate the fuel gages (Dynon HDX) however I am now realizing that with the wing dihedral the fuel doesn't even touch the outboard plate until there is about 5 gallons and doesn't seem to read anything meaningful until about 8. The HDX reads about 0.1v difference between each of the 4, 6 and 8 gallon marks. Each time the HDX says "there was no change, are you sure fuel was added."
Anyway, is this normal/acceptable to anyone that the fuel gage stops at 5 gallons remaining? Is anyone happy with these senders? Should I order the float type today and be done with it?
