My dock mate once asked me about how he could get better fuel economy in his boat. He started talking about all these expensive ideas, and I realized that he never considered a few basic things that can make a huge difference when it comes to fuel savings.
I recommended a couple of simple ideas that may be helpful to you too. Check them out:
Clean the bottom of your boat:
Algae, Zebra Mussels and other things that grow on your boat’s bottom or outdrive can add drag and create small performance issues that you may not notice, but will cost you fuel economy over time.
If you have a dirty or clogged fuel filter, then it’s doing its job, but you need to change it to allow proper fuel flow to the engine. The engine could end up working twice as hard to get the fuel that it needs to run properly. I recommend that you change your fuel filter every 100 hours or once a year.
