Reliable tyre pressure gauge for MH use

Can anyone recommend one?

Preferably at a not too eye watering price

I have a couple of these G and they do seem accurate.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

I actually have three and have checked they all read the same. Maybe they are all similarly wrong though but unlikely.
Those digital ones work OK until the batts get low and then they seem to go haywire.

I have a digital one at under £10 and a 40 or 50 year old pencil type and both are remarkably accurate.......they don't make 'em like that anymore!!!!!!

I have the pencil type, and yes any can be inaccurate, however, it will be accurately inaccurate, just like a multimeter, so long as you get the same reading and the tyre doesn't look flat have faith as it's not going to be a million miles out, I had a mate years ago he had OCD and he checked his tyres at silly short intervals and could not understand why he had to keep putting the odd PSI in.

Mt wife has been telling me one tyre looks a bit flat for about ten years. She will be right eventually.

It's only flat at the bottom though.

Happy to help!

Ah!! now, you say that.


BUT if it's been parked for a year in one place with no movement and you move it a foot or two it could be flat at the top as well.

Up here for thinking, down there for dancing isn't it look you.
