Pete, do you use the Navman with your Pac22? If so, was the diesel installation relatively simple or not?

Cheers,

D...

Pete

perhaps madly I'm assuming the pumps at Morrisons are reasonably accurate!

Be interesting to know the regulations surrounding tolerances on amount of actual fuel delivered at a petrol station per indicated litre.

Stu tested them for a while, think he regularly found up to 5% errors in either direction.

The Navman was on the petrol Ribtec, easy enough to fit, just need to keep the sender unit vertical to reduce bubbles over the paddle wheel.

The diesel version is 500 in this country which is hard to justify as it would buy a lot of red stuff.

You may well have to play with the sample rate of the unit too.
Mine was ok with the default setting, however injected engines suck fuel in "lumps" and the sample rater has to be extended to average this out. My carb engine has a nice even flow, a bit like pouring a Jerry can down a drain.

One other thing I have found is that I should have wired it through the ignition circuit so it switches off with the engine. I sometimes show 0.5 l/h withe the engine off. I assume this is the fuel column moving with wave action.

Watch the display when pumping the bulb - that will give you a fright!!!

One thing that concerns me is that I am wondering if the fuel transducer is resticing fuel flow somewhat - I am going to take it out for a while to see if I get more revs.

The US price comes in at 98 including delivery (plus possible tax).

Worth it?

I'm waiting for a few more 'fills' before doing it to be more accurate.

Unit showed 104L used yet I could only get 87L in the tank afterwards.
At least its roughly consistant in how far out it is considering I'm filling with a forecourt pump until it comes out the breather each time.

If the Navman's right, tell us where your Morrisons is, cos I think we'd all like to get 104 litres for the price of 87

It'd still be cheaper to get 104 litres at channel islands prices
Can you post petrol tax free?

I have just plumbed mine in on my boat.

T5110i and the optional FS35 fuel transducer, the manual does harp on about the unit being vertical. Haven't tried it yet tho'.
