Subject:   Thoughts on Floscan Series 9000 multi fx flowmeter

I have a 2005 2575 rl/io Bennington with 4.3 I/O.  I think it is rated for 180 Hp.  I typically run at 3500 rpm at 20 mph(gps confirmed).  It seems to get horrible fuel economy and I thought about getting a fuel flow meter to try to seek the optimal speed/economy curve.  The issue is I only use 600 to 900 $ per year in fuel and the Floscan meter series 9000 cost upward 800$ with probe.  If I see a 10% improvement in economy and save 80$ per year, the payoff would be 10 years.  Not sure that it is worth it.  Any thought appreciated.

Good day to all

It would be a waste of money. Almost all boats get their best fuel economy between 3000 and 3500 RPM so you're already close. Boats don't get good fuel economy, so have fun and don't think about it.

Your right, but the glow of the instrument lights sure are pretty..... well,  I will let my girls drive (designated drivers) and I will just enjoy the ride.  Cheers!
