computerized fuel guage

Hi All,
I'm after a computerized fuel guage that will tell me how much fuel I've used, ltrs/minute, fuel left etc. So far I've only come across ones that cost 400-650 . Can anyone recommend anything?

Regards

Mike

The Navman ones are much cheaper than that - the 2100 for singles or the 3100 that will take twins as well.

Nearly all Navman electonics (bar radios) have fuel info built into the menu system so in that case you need only buy the transducer.

we use the diesel version of this!

My new Redbay 11m has just gone into the mould and as part of the electronics package I had asked for the new Navman Fuel Flow system but rumour has it that it is being withdrawn because its crap.

Is the system you have, linked into your existing electronics, different from the stand alone unit

HI no ours was a stand alone unit, we were evaluating it for Navman and it stayed on the boat, From our observations it seems to work better after an elctric lift pump rather than a mech one as in our Cat. We felt it was because there were two impellers added to the fuel flow. Another thing we suggested is that the fuel pipes be sealed with proper jointing compound ( Such As Heldite)

We had our own petrol ones and they were cool and groovy
