Fuel pressure gauge broke, what type lasts longest?

I'm on my 4th fuel pressure (low, 0-15psi) gauge in 10 years and they all do the same: they eventually don't drop to zero and are 1psi or more too high. I can't remember if these were dry or liquid filled. They were all about $20, small, right on the carb. I know the liquid filled are more stable, I think my current one is not liquid filled. This is a summit, I've used mr gasket etc.

So, any opInions? Does liquid usually last longer. Do I have to shell out for an pricey one?

I use liquid filled on, my current gage is from jegs and it has performed perfect for five years (approx 10,000 miles). Used a non filled years ago and had all kinds of issues.

BTW, any Mr Gasket product I have ever purchased I have had issues. Also if you mount the gage on the firewall or inner fender it will see less vibration. I do mount mine on the carb as you still have no issues.
