  The guys at Longacreracing told me when I was looking that the liquid 
filled will be the most accurate, of course I was not looking at the 
first $360 gauge that Jeff posted.

  I purchased this one My 
calibration technique consisted of  comparing it to 2 of their digital 
units and it gave the same reading, that was my super accurate 
calibration :)

   To have what you specifically asked for with fill nozzle, take a look 
I have the dial (or is that analog) version of it and i have been happy, 
its 10+ years old and gives the same reading as the liquid filled gauge.

    It does not answer your calibration question, but I think for tires 
at least, I don't know what you will use it on, that the most important 
thing is consistency, that is why I have 3 gauges one in each car and 
motorcycle and the guys at longacreracing sure like their liquid filled 
guages when you talk to them.
