With the accident reports littered with fuel exhaustion events, it's logical to consider a big-screen engine monitor with digital fuel quantity display. But we often see disappointed buyers who shortchange the install by using the existing, aging fuel tank sensors and failing wiring. Worse, they might spend time and money having the old sensors removed, repaired, and reinstalled only to fail again.

In this episode of Panel Planner 101 Live, Aviation Consumer magazine Editor Larry Anglisano along with CiES Corp. founder Scott Philiben talk through the installation and benefits of replacing the old sensors with modern digital smart fuel sensors. Done correctly, they yield more accurate and reliable fuel quantity measurements.
