This reminds me of the discussion after the USAToday article "Safety last" was published.

Among the mostly disgusted responses from pilots, there were a few justifiable concerns, which included: How is it possible that aircraft manufacturers can get a GA aircraft certified with fuel gauges that are acknowledged as being "dubious"?

Sadly won't work in a Pup with long range tanks. The only way is to put in the amount of fuel you need, or fill the tank, which ever is less. I would NEVER rely on an assessment of the amount of fuel the previous pilot has left in tank. Even if that pilot is me!
