Can anyone tell me how to find an accurate tire pressure gauge? I have 3 gauges and they all read a different pressure on the same tire. The dial gauge I paid the most for reads 10 psi higher than the other gauges I have.

I asked at NAPA and they had no idea how to tell which of their gauges are most accurate.

Any ideas?

You would need an air storage of a known amount of pressure. That could be number 1 problem. Then compare the gauges to the known pressure. Shocked
I have a couple of stick gauges, 2 dial gauges and a digital gauge. They usually are very close. (within 1 lb of readable measurement).
