LESS IS MORE - Vantage View® line

Livorsi Marine has been busy creating a variety of options for its Vantage View New gauge series that, along with the standard-function gauges, features a "Master Tachometer " with an analog rpm readout and a built-in LCD screen that displays the information your engine’s ECM provides.

The Grayslake, Ill., company recently added carbon-fiber and silver-carbon-fiber dials to the amazing Vantage View line, which offers five dial options and 11 powder-coated color choices for the rims as well as polished stainless steel. Livorsi didn’t stop there. The Livorsi company has also designed new Euro-style, low-profile rims to add elegance and color to your dash.

FloScan Marine Fuel Computers have become essential equipment to a wide range of gas and diesel boat owners. Sport fishermen, cruisers, patrol boats, ocean racers, commercial fishing boats, tugboats, and mega yachts have all found fuel computers irreplaceable as an effective tool for fuel management.

Sport fishermen venturing offshore with limited fuel capacity now know exactly how much fuel they are burning and how much is left in their tanks. So the decision to fish one more hotspot is no longer fraught with peril as it was when all they had was a bouncing fuel gauge. Ocean race boats have plenty of tank capacity but must carry as little fuel as possible to minimize the total weight and yet enough to cross the finish line.

In fact, an extra 200 pounds of fuel can cut top speed by 1MPH and possibly cost you the race. The champion of the Super Boat Class "INXS", has fuel management down to a science using six FloScan HI-Capacity Systems - three on the main 1200 hp gas engines and three on the transfer lines feeding the stern tanks. "INXS" carries 450-490 gallons of fuel for a race and has finished with as little as 5 gallons in the tank... a testimony to the accuracy of a FloScan System.

flow meters - the pros and cons

With the price of marine fuel zooming out of this "modern" world, you can considering a installing a fuel flow meter to help you conserve gas. But they're pretty pricey.

The pros:

Yes, at $150-$500 dollars, fuel flow meters can seem like a luxury. However, accurate monitoring of your fuel consumption in varying sea conditions allows you to identify the most efficient running speed and rpms for your boat. Running at maximum efficiency reduces your fuel consumption and saves you money.

A sudden increase in fuel consumption, which you might not notice without a fuel flow meter, may be an early warning of trouble ahead with your engine, drive shaft, propeller or some other part of your propulsion system. It might tip you off that you're dragging something. Early warning signs can help you avoid potentially costly repairs. Early diagnosis and repair of developing problems, in turn, can help you avoid being stranded.

Speaking of being stranded, with a fuel flow meter you can avoid forever the embarrassing situation of having to call a tow because you ran out of gas. Just set the alarm on the fuel flow meter to alert you when you've reached the level at which it's time to gas up, and you can quit worrying.

If you know the rate at which you are consuming your precious fuel, and you know how much you have left in the tank, you can make a really intelligent decision about whether or not to bypass that outrageously expensive fuel dock for a more reasonable fill-up further up the bay.

And finally, if you consume more than 200 gallons of gas in a season, a fuel flow meter can pay for itself in fuel costs and possibly more in a single season.

The cons:

The fuel flow meters are pricey. The Floscan Series 7000 Multifunction Gas Meter that combines a digital LCD Engine Hour Meter, Fuel Flowmeter, Tachometer and Fuel Totalizer in a single 3-3/8" diameter instrument costs over $450.

But when you weigh the cost against the potential savings from all the pros above.
