Runtoeat Posted January 29, 2012 Report Share Posted January 29, 2012 Hi Jerry, this is a reply to your question posted in another section of the Forum about fuel dip sticks. The subject of dipsticks has come up before. This is what I would call one of those "mysterious" areas where questions are raised about the dipsticks but there has been no input from FD that I know of. Older CT's such as my 2006 have dipsticks which show "left" and "right" sides on the dipstick. Newer CTs have dipsticks which show "gallons" on one side and "liters" on the other. With the newer dipstick, one uses one set of marks to measure the fuel in both tanks. As far as I know, the newer CT's have the same fuel tanks that older CT's have. I have measured the fuel level in both of my tanks after draining and then filling with known amounts of fuel. It seems like the "right" side of my dipstick agrees with the known amounts of fuel added so I just use the "right" side to dip my tanks. My answer to your question would be that the dipstick corresponds to "left" and "right" as one stands at the rear of the plane and looks foward to the nose.
