    Refer does mess with most sensor readings if they are thermoconductive but doesn't stick to the sensor like oil. When you get low enough the refer has less affect on the reading but oil would still be there. Refer will cause a lower reading with higher pressure mostly.

    Revive the thread.
    New here. So how do each of y'all pull a vac. Personally I use 2 vcrt's with 1/2" hoses straight to the pump.

    ,I always just put it on one of my ports on manifold that way I can shut it off right there when vacuum is good, and can check if vacuum is holding or if pump is pullin properly all right there at your manifold
