No, it does not sense, measure or meter moisture. It does keep track of a couple things though, but that is not the "probe looking" end's job. The end that looks like a sensor is not.

Something in the automotive field? Possibly aftermarket insturmentation?

I would have guessed some sort of emissions meter had you not said "nothing to do with gas"

Hmm...

Or did you mean "natural gas" or "gasoline" by that...

I don't know...... Which did Andy mean when he said "gas detector"?

No, nothing to do with natural gas, fuel, engines or instrumentation. I guess you could call this a "set it and forget it" kind of device.

I know, Andy. If it detected one kind of gas and not the other I would have worded that into my response somehow.

True..... it senses things, so I guess you could say it meters its surroundings, but it isn't thought of as a meter in the typical sense of the word. One would not look at this and say, oh-oh...... or, we better adjust this. The word "meter" is not in any part of its name.
