The Snap On MT324 is very accurate and easy to use .
Not sure if its still in their product line , but it would be my choice .
Quite a few used ones on line cheap.

Back when Fuel racers leaked the engine between rounds that was the one that most of them used .
I got my first one from my bud that drove a Fuel dragster/

No love for the Moroso 89600?

I've had one for many years. Happy with it. Still works great.

HAd a Moroso 89600 for 50 years it finally started to read high. Bought a OTC 5609 two guage unit. Its accurate and repeatable.

Only $74 on Amazon right now (with Prime membership anyway) and looks to be made in USA unless I’m missing something.
