    While most if not all fuel pressure guages are easy to use, this instrument appears to be well built and therefore resistant to incidental damage. This also inspires confidence in the measurement given. It's broad scale is easy to read, even for my older eyes. I used it on a vehicle not indicated in the instruction booklet, but found I needed no adaptation beyond the supplied adaptor.

    Seems Ok

    Seems like a pretty good gauge. I have only used it one time and had no problems, worked as expected. would like to have a bit longer hose and maybe a rubber cover around gauge. fittings worked great screwed right on fuel rail with no leaks. for the price a cheap case would have been nice. I would purchase it again...

        Comments about Actron Fuel Pressure Tester Kit:

        I used this product to messure the presure of a newly installed fuel pump that was giving me trouble. By using the product I was able to determine that fuel presure was fluctuating. The product work great and gave accurate readings. I changed the fuel filter and the problem went away. The product was very easy to use. Well worth the purchase.

            Comments about Actron Fuel Pressure Tester Kit:

            This gauge seems to be of decent quality. It was tough to get out of the package, but once it was in my grubby hands, it was easy to work with.

            Included in the packaging is a link to a website that has repair information, though I didn't use this, I can imagine that it would be useful.

            What I found useful was the additional fitting necessary to connect to some Ford vehicles. It wasn't necessary for me to use this, but it sude beats having to purchase this fitting separately.

            All-in-all, I would recommend this to anyone needing a "less than professional" gauge set.

                              This Actron tester works great, is easy to use, easy to read, and is very sturdy. It revealed that my fuel pump is not defective and thereby saved me a lot of time, labor, and money.

                              While using the CP7818 the car hood fell shut, striking the gauge. I expected to see some dings at the least, and possibly a broken gauge. No damage at all, to my great relief.

                                    This Actron Fuel Pressure Tester Kit (Part# CP7818) does not fit your 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT. Unfortunately, we do not see fuel pressure tester (part# cp7817) available online right now. However, if you are to visit your local Advance Auto Parts store, the representative there will be happy to assist you with this or you can contact us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) for further assistance.

                                    This Actron Fuel Pressure Tester Kit diagnoses drivability problems caused by poor fuel pressure. It works on makes and models with schrader valve test port on the fuel rail. This fuel pressure tester features a relief button and 6-ft hose for safely disposing of gasoline and repeating tests without disconnecting gauge. It also works on throttle body injection with threaded connection at fuel filter or throttle body. It includes comprehensive user manual with illustrated step-by-step automotive test procedures.

                                  Where can you get replacement gaskets for the fitting? They wear out and begin to leak eventually - mine is in poor condition and I need to find a replacement. Thanks.

                                    This Fuel Pressure Tester Kit from Actron is designed to fit most vehicles, but is not an exact fit for your 2001 Chevrolet Blazer LT. This is a universal, one size fits most part.
