            I'm on my third sensor. I have it located in the engine room where water always accumulates in the bilge. Apprently the humidity is a problem for this sensor.

            Comments about M1 Gasoline Fume Detector:

            Installed in boat as instructions stated. Test procedure indicated it worked. But, when I intentionally spilled gas under sensor, to perform MY test, alarm didn't sound. Company stated to use unlite butane lighter to test. That didn't work either. If raw gas under sensor will not set off alarm, what good is it? Don't buy!!!!!!!!

                Comments about M1 Gasoline Fume Detector:

                Five years after installation in my vintage Lyman utility the alarm sounded right after I had sniffed the engine compartment and then started the engine. A small fuel leak from a fitting had developed, no doubt from the extensive vibrations incurred on Interstate 95. Sniffing prior to starting wasn't enough because the fitting was downstream of the the fuel pump and therefore not pressurized until after the engine started. This alarm probably saved my boat and maybe my life.

                        Won't replace a good look in the bilge, but is an extra level of safety. Easy to test both meter and sensor.
