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.

I researched different fuel pressure testers and was concerned with a few complaints online about the connector seal and the schrader coupler failing.

Mine did after 2 uses. The first use worked like a champ. The second use resulted in the rubber coupler seal leaking and eventually breaking apart, leaving gas pouring out and then the schrader valve connector fell apart with the central valve release and tiny cross-bar landing on the floor.

I returned the kit to the store for a refund. Advance Auto Parts access the return and gave a full refund. If the seal didn't leak and the coupler didn't fall apart, I'd have a good tester in my 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.

                    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.

                            Glad to assist, Dean! This Actron Fuel Pressure Tester Kit - Part No. CP7818 is universal and is not application specific. 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-feet 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 a comprehensive user manual with illustrated step-by-step automotive test procedures.

An inline Spring Lock Coupling Adapter would be required to "tee" into the fuel pressure rail and this type of coupler is not available for any Actron tester. An OEM Ford fuel pressure tester or Professional equivalent would be required.

                        • Q:

                          I have a Toyota Corolla 93 DX sedan. The fuel rail has a Union Bolt fitting in the side of the fuel rail. Do I need any special adapters or fittings or does this kit have already what I need? Thanks in advance.

                            Hi Jose, I'm glad to help you! No adapters would include to direct connect to this vehicle with this tool or are available for this tool. You could use an Actron T fitting #0180-000-1478, but you would need to cut the fuel line to install the “T”. This is not sold on AdvanceAutoParts.com. I recommend checking with your local store for availability.
