Hi Kiwiboyd

Can you offer any advice on my Protector fuel level indicator? I have an 8.5 Cabin rib with twin Yamaha 150 with the standard Yamaha instruments. There is one standard tank and the fuel level is indicated by the LCD black bars. The fuel level however seems very inconsistent and appears to change, suddenly full / suddenly lower - is this an anomaly of the system or do you think the sender is sticking? Do you have the standard Yamaha fuel indicator or have you fitted another?

I should perhaps further explain that when the boat comes to rest the fuel level does not rebalance as one would expect.

In my experience Fuel Gauges are next to useless and often cause more problems than their worth.Fitting a fuel flow meter ect is the only reliable way to know what your using...and have left,they will also calculate your ''Range'',dependant on Speed ect in real time. You'll need an i-gauge or you can run it through the later Garmin and other Plotters

Great work on the Protectors. Love seeing boats in bits to understand how they are put together.

Not meaning to hijack the thread but any affordable fuel flow / fuel management options for twin older diesels (2004 Yamaha ME421's)? The gauges are reasonably consistent but without a needle they are difficult to estimate where we are up to.
