Question for mechanics

I have a Sears Craftsman AC/DC clamp meter and would like to know if that would be accurate for DC current measurements or should I get a current clamp for my Fluke 115 DMM automotive work? Also the Fluke I410 Current clamp is about 200 dollars which is more than I want to spend and I would like to know if there are cheaper current clamps that would work just as well in my Fluke DMM? Thanks!

You need a clamp-on that reads DC current. Sears sells a Craftsman that reads AC and DC and is about $70.00, others make them but they may not be as easy to find and more expensive.
