    Fuel Flow Systems-gctid812145

    What is the easiest fuel flow system to install your self. From what I have seen they are not a low cost item.

    Interested in this as well and I agree, from what I've looked at online they can be on the pricey side inch: for those that have them, what are you using?

    I wonder if I really want to know how much fuel I'm burning :lol:

      I picked up an older floscan unit with the senders for cheap money on ebay (135.00 for all) and the install was very straight forward. Kinds nervous cutting into the fuel lines but it all worked out well. Now I can trim the boat to save on gas. One of the better investments I have made on my boat.

        I have installed 3 Flo-scan systems. If you are installing on a diesel its more work as a flow sensor must be installed on the feed and return fuel lines. Other then getting the sensors plumbed in a safe and workmanlike fashion the wiring is pretty easy. Floscan tech support is excelllent! Read the full set of instructions twice BEFORE you start anything. They are very thorough. Its one item that will eventually pay for itself as it will help you find the best economy at any speed. The units that tie into your GPS for a speed signal will actually display your MPG in real time. For twin gas installations I liked their twinscan systems. Unfortunately they don't offer twin scan for diesels.

          If you buy Flo Scans, go direct to Flo scan, they used to give a good discount if buying direct.

            Hey builderdude: you gotta go with FloScan.

            Any service problems or issues and you can walk the question down to their factory, behind University Village in Seattle.

            Just don't let any other members of the family go shopping across the street.
