Duelly tire gague that doesn't suck

I'm looking for a tire pressure gague that doesn't suck, for use on my E350 van.

The pencil shirt-pocket ones seem to give almost random readings, and they die really quickly when hit with 65psi pressure (or 70lbs+ when hot). Seems like they're designed for cars with little 30psi tires.

I found a heavier-duty gague at O'Reilly years ago that had a circular gague and a hose for reaching the rear duelly wheels, but it died too.

Are there any tire gagues out there that don't suck, work with 65psi in front and 60psi in rear tires, can reach the inner duelly wheels easily, don't cost an arm and a leg, and won't die after a dozen uses?

Thanks.

hav u tried one that for a trailer that maxes out at 120 psi? I've used one like that at work for a few years, never had a problem with it. When i bought my Powerstroke, i bought a trailer one that maxes out at 120, havnt had a problem with it yet. But i see u might need something different for teh dual wheels.
