drip-stick gauge


drip-stick gauge
A type of visual fuel-quantity indicator to measure the quantity of fuel in a tank. Unlike a dipstick, a drip stick is located at the bottom of a tank. The drip stick is slowly pulled out until the first drop of fuel drops. At this time, the top of the drip stick is at the same level as the fuel in the tank. Marks on the drip stick indicate how much fuel is in the tank.
