Product Description

Fred & Friends Tank Up is a Coffee Mug Packaged individually in an attractive gift box. The unique feature is a printed heat sensitive guage which is designed to resemble an automobile gas guage. As hot liquid is pored into the mug the guage turns red and gradually rises from the bottom to indicate how hot the liquid is. The guage itself is the entertaining aspect of the product.

Bought as a xmas gift and they loved it.

I don't own a dishwasher, so when I hand washed it and found that the STICKERS had come off, I was a little disappointed.
Daniel
Use it every day in the office and is a great conversation starter around the office coffee pot.

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He liked it, but it's very simple. The mug is on the smaller side, and very lightweight. The gauge is just a sticker, really, and will not survive a trip through the dishwasher. This may have been noted on the box, but no where is it noted on the mug itself. So when my Mom was trying to be helpful after dinner, she put it in the dishwasher, ran it, and it was ruined. $12 down the drain! Of course, you can still use the mug, but a plain white mug like this would cost you less than a $1 at the store. So if you get it, HAND WASH ONLY! And make sure others know that, too. So bummed it's already ruined. :(

Color Name: Red
I purchased this item as a gift, the mug was a lot smaller than I expected, I was expecting something somewhat bigger, especially being a novelty item.

I expected the print on the mug to actually be part of the mug itself, I have owned colour changing mugs before and expected this one to follow suit. The "black" print however can be felt on the outside of the mug, it is actually raised up a bit. Leading one to believe that this can easily begin to scratch off after a few washes - Even with a non-abrasive wash which it advises in small text.

The guage print of the black over the red is not aligned correctly, so when the mug is half full, you can see that there is a bit of a shoddy print job. I have uploaded some customer images to reference this.

I like the concept, but seriously needs some improvements.

This mug is awesome. I got it for my dad as a christmas present because he's a big coffee/tea drinker. He was initially a little wary of the fact that it's about 10%-20% smaller than a regular mug, but he got over that pretty quickly once he loaded it up the first time and watched the fuel gauge rise.

It's a unique, amusing, and fully usable mug, just be aware that it's slightly smaller than a regular coffee mug so you'll be drinking a lot more cups than you're used to to get the same volume of liquid.

Update 1/17/13:

I am subtracting 1 star from my previous review. It is important to note that this item is NOT dishwasher safe. After several rounds in the dishwasher the "fuel gauge" started to peel off, and now this cup is just a plain white mug that is slightly smaller than other mugs in the cabinet.

A word to the wise: Don't put this thing in the dishwasher or scrub it too vigorously in hot water.

Awesome idea, very poor production quality. I don't own a dishwasher, so when I hand washed it and found that the STICKERS had come off, I was a little disappointed. Also, I'd much rather just have the stickers to put on my already favorite mug.

This product is OK, but it doesn't really show the liquid level.

As someone mentioned before, the mug gets pretty hot. Therefore, the 'fuel line' is all red (stays at full) when any hot liquids are present.

About 2-3 minutes after finishing the hot drink, the fuel line gradually falls from full to empty.

Still kind of cool, but not exactly what I was expecting from the pictures.

This is a cute idea - heat sensitive indicators that change color indicating liquid level. Unfortunately, it appears that "Fred" is simply buying white mugs and stenciling the rest, i.e. the graphics is not fired and permanent. I got four mugs, and in all cases the graphics peeled off after a few washes. So I have four plain white mugs now. Even the manufacturer's logo on the bottom is gone, leaving no clue about the mug's beginnings.

it is mostly a toy, but not showing exactly how hot, the drink can be just warm and the red line will be all the way up.
