Navman Diesel Fuel Management
Following up on the success of its various fuel-management tools for gasoline engines, Navman is moving into diesel. The 3300 system can deliver real-time gph, mpg, and other valuable data by combining in- and out-flow sensors with GPS speed information obtained via a NMEA or Navbus connection. Once you’ve specified tank size and fill status, the system can also track remaining fuel and compute cruising range. Moreover, it comes with a digital tachometer input for yet more fuel-burn knowledge and help with synching. The dual-engine 3300 costs $1,600, the single version $1,000. Navman has not yet said if diesel management will also be incorporated into its plotters and fishfinders, as it has done with gasoline.
