We just recently recieved a 1980 Bell 206L1 here at my base as a temporary bird until our primary comes out of maintenance. During the preflight I noticed that, inside the main fuel tank, there is a metal measuring stick (looks very similar to a "yard stick" for lack of a better description) installed. This measuring stick has a scale of numbers ranging from 1-19 on it. I have combed over the entire POH from cover to cover several times and can not find any information on what these numbers represent or even any mention of this measuring device in the tank. After I spoke with my maintenance personal they told me that they hadn't seen one of these devices in a very long time and they were not sure if they had any literature on it or not.

So, my question is...Does anyone out there have experience with this older system and if so, can you share your knowledge about it with me? Also, if there is any literature on the net about this could you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
-Brandon-
