Question....my fuel gauge showed I was really low on fuel...a little sliver showed I would say 1/16th at best..first of all it seemed to go from 1/4 to nothing really fast so after a panic attack I made it to a marina to fill up and it only took 43 gallons?? Says it holds 53 10 gallons left and really showed nothing on the gauge does this sound right?? It's a 2014 212SS
Question my fuel gauge showed I was really low on fuel a little sliver showed...
So how do you track gallons used?
My wife ask me if we had paddles on our boat yesterday. I told her I had an anchor and a phone. If I lose power, I drop the anchor and call for a tow! I can't imagine paddling my boat more than 50' at most!
I dont. I look at my guage and when it gets towards the E. I put gas in it. Fairly simple system.
My 2012 240 gauge has buttons to cycle through digital read outs and one of them is gals used...I set one gauge for tht the other is set for depth
Gas tank is 50 gallons not 53...
I think both tank and gauges on the older Yamaha's are relative to that boat. My tank is stamped 52gal....and my fuel gauge? Stays full for a long time before it starts to bounce around, slowly get to around half a tank.....then nose dives to a quarter quickly.... and I'll have 15-18 gals still left, but I start figuring out where to fill up. At least it's been consistent from day 1-
What Jerry does.
I just spoke with my dealer Eric at Bayside Jet drive and he confirmed that it is designed to have approx 10 gallons left when on empty
The reason is not just so you don't run out of fuel but it keeps fuel in the pump bowl all the time and prevents damage from running it dry
Thanks everybody...as usual you are very helpful
