Conclusion

Many older recreational boats, particularly those with diesel power, are capable of providing not just years, but decades of reliable service when maintained properly and that is why it is commonplace to see boats 30 years old and older still on the water today. However, older boats and engines do not have any way to track fuel consumption and trying to improve operating efficiency is nearly impossible. The addition of a FloScan fuel computer, especially one with the FloNet network hub mated to modern helm electronics, is one upgrade that will expand the vessel’s versatility and aid in improving the boats operating efficiency. By increasing efficiency and reducing overall fuel consumption a FloScan system is capable of paying for itself over time and act as an early warning system for a variety of potential problems.
