I purchased a digital air pressure gage that will read to within +/- 2 psi from NAPA for under $35.00. I use this to air the camper tires and TV when towing. I have checked this gage against my three air compressors and they all read within 2 psi of each other.

Mr Mcnabbwr, my "go to" guage has been the Milton S986....until I found it reading 15-20 PSIg low. I would hate to think that my old faithful Milton is the reason for my chinabomb tires going off.....especially when I've always been diligent about tire pressure. But if I've had 60 psi when I thought i had 80.....well....that could be a problem.

Thanks for all the ideas...including a few options I hadn't thought of

I stopped by the local NAPA store the other day. Took a close look at their digital gauge. It was marked at $25, but when I went to pay for it, turned out it was on sale for $15. I wish it had a "hold" feature on it that would hold the last reading. You have to be looking at it straight on when taking a reading, otherwise you just can't read the numbers.

Certainly not a deal breaker,....it is just not as convenient as a gauge that holds the reading.

I have one of these I got a couple of months ago. I have access to a calibrated source and this digital gauge is accurate to .1 psi, so far. I had to pay full price for mine....... I agree that it would be nice to be able to hold the reading. It can be hard for old eyes to see in the sunlight...
