Something under $50 - simple plastic construction. The one on
your web page is $200 for airplanes. All metal, FAA certified,
so here's the price. Most sensors I've seen so far are for
industrial applications and they have too high flow range -
starting from 1 GPM (max) and up. With usual 1:10 range they
will be too inaccurate for me. My most critical range will be
from 2 to 5 GPH. There are some for lab, medical, food and
other specialty applications with proper ranges, but they are
also too expensive, because they have to meet whole bunch of
other standards and certifications. There must be something
specifically made for fuel flow measurement in car/boat
industry. But I can't find any so far.
