Refractometer Question
 
When I look at my in-tank hydrometer it reads .022 but when I test it in my refractometer it shows .024. Is it common to have that difference between the two. The refractometer has been calibrated per the instructions and I check it weekly.

Thats why we advise the use of a Refractometer. Hydrometers are not accurate.
