The aircraft tank and gauge system of the present invention provides a fuel tank with a gauge chamber located generally aligned with the tank center of gravity and that has a general vertical orientation when the aircraft is level. The gauge chamber extends from the top of the tank to a height generally equivalent to a high collection point on the tank and/or extends from the bottom of the tank to a height generally equivalent to a low collection point on the tank. As the aircraft pitches and rolls, fuel within a complex-shaped tank, will be measured by ...
What is claimed is: 1. An aircraft fuel tank and gauge system comprising: a fuel tank having: a bottom defining a low collection point where, when the tank is empty, added fuel collects when the aircraft is level, a top defining a high collection point where, when the tank is full, added fuel collects when the aircraft is level, and a gauge chamber extending from the top of the tank to a height equal or above the high collection point of the tank; a gauge partially received within the gauge chamber and partially received within a main chamber of the ta...
