Diesel fuel ommeter

Hi,

For those of you who are waiting we have just agreed with Navman to test their Diesel Fuel Scan metre, these are being introduced to this country quite soon. It's being fitted to our boat within the next two weeks and we will keep you posted as to performance and progress.

Cheers
Stuart

Hi Stu
I had heard a bit more than that, I was warned about the vibration effecting the sensors. Would be interested in hearing what your results are like as I've had one on order since they were anounced and then withdrawn.
Okay how did some one break Billy!!!
Have fun
Jelly

The petrol 2100 is around that much, I know cos I bought the one that they sold this year!

The oil burner meter is a 3100 and the petol one is circa 350 from memory so add another sensor at 50 ish for the return and you will be nearer the mark.

My 2100 reads upto 0.5 lph when the boat is on its trailer in my drive.
When I spoke to several guys at SBS I was eventualy told I would have to return the sensor for new one.

we run 2 navman fuel sensors.... We had some troble setting them up. first problem was a tick over they were reading 60L hr etc ... but we soon sorted this by fitting about a 2 feet extra of fuel line between the engine and the senser... this stoped the pulsing from the fuel pump which was send it off...

Once properly calibrated, we find then good to about 5% , and with one 55l and one 65 l tank , that is pretty good. When the first tank is about to run out, the senser starts to read very irratticaly, and we know the to change tank valves......... we dont even run out of fuel.......

Hiya

Somebody from Wolverhampton boke the hydraulic pump that works the bucket. I'll whip it out today and we will find out what what. The good news is that the engine is fine

I dunno anything about the sensor but will give you an honest report in a month or so

The latest 2100s have a averaging setting, which can be set from 1 to 99 seconds to overcome this problem. Perhaps what ever yours are connected to has the same.

the standard setting is 10 sec , we found that 20 is the best for our engines.

If I was buying another RIB, this is the first bit of kit I would add , after VHF and Plotter ..... they say that flowscan is more accurate that navman , and you can now buy the on line from the US for almost the same price !

Navman has the advantage of Fish finder , and data , of trip , temp , hrs etc
