I know it sounds crazy, but keep a lookout for a Micro Motion mass flowmeter on eBay. They will

another off eb...

Yup. Math be damned! I'd also be curious to hear how much these pads cost to do a typical ~6-8

about 50. Any brand in particular?I often see Gemu on there but they usually have an odd piping
