Cost around 10 bucks. I scuffed it up with a wire brush so the fuel would stick better, and notched it every inch from the bottom. Not perfect, but it's the best solution I've found yet. I plan to order a couple of floscans when a few other budget items are behind me.
TY CaptTom! I'll look at that. Figure I can take length of stainless wire, rough it up for depth of tank, spray paint flat black with white paint stripes at 1/8 intervals to full... and give her a try! Be easy to store as straight rod next to bridge seats; weathering would me no prob!. I'll post once accomplished. By george - This should work!
