Deck Fuel Tanks
Your boat fuel tank can be an above deck fuel tank or a below deck fuel tank. Above deck fuel tanks are easier to maintain because they are more accessible, but they are more exposed to the elements and take up valuable space on your boat. Below deck fuel tanks are harder to get to and a little bit heavier, but are protected from the elements and are nestled under the floor of the boat, so you get extra space.
Blowers and Vents
Blowers and vents are essential to keep your passengers safe from harmful gas fumes. Ensuring that your blowers and vents are working correctly is not only a safety precaution, but it is also required by the US Coast Guard. Blowers and vents can also prevent explosions from built up fumes and gasses from happening on your boat. Proper installation of your blowers and vents are crucial in making sure all of the fumes and gasses get released to ensure your safety and your boat's safety.
Do I need a Fuel Water Separator?
A fuel water separator is essential to make sure your fuel tank doesn't get contaminated by condensation. The separator filters out any water or condensation before it gets into your engine, and is a necessity whether you have a removable or permanent fuel tank. Even with a removable fuel tank, water can still seep in through the cap or a defective vent. When trying to pick the right fuel water separator, there are a few things to take into consideration:
- Filter - Comes in a variety of thicknesses - 2, 10, or 30 microns. Usually 10 is enough, but there are certain cases where you may need more than that.
- Inspection Bowl - The centrifuge chamber deposits water into the inspection bowl. Inspection Bowls come in clear heat resistant plastic, aluminum, or a combination of both. Many people prefer the clear heat resistant plastic inspection bowls because it is easier to see when the bowl needs to be drained.
- Engine Size - Your fuel water separator needs to match the size of your boat's engine. If it is too small, it will decrease your boat's performance.
- Fuel Flow Rate - Every boat has a unique fuel flow rate, and in order to get the right separator you must know your boat's fuel flow rate (not fuel consumption rate).
- Environmental Factors - Depending on the cleanliness of the water where you are boating, you can get by with a less effective fuel water separator. If you are in an area with a lot of debris, you will need a better separator, while if you are in a clean area you can get by with a less effective separator.
Filling your boat with fuel for a fun-filled day shouldn't be stressful or challenging. Marine funnels make refueling your boat a breeze and save you time, meaning there's more time for fun on the water! Fuel your boat and don't lose a drop with a durable marine funnel.
Adding a fuel treatment when you fuel up your boat is a great idea to help prevent buildup and clean up carbon deposits. Having a fuel treatment added before storing your boat can also help give you a peace of mind since it will stabilize the fuel while it is in storage. It is recommended to do a generic fuel treatment each time you refuel your boat, however you don't have to do it that often.
Portable Fuel Tanks
Portable fuel tanks are removable - therefore they are not on your boat permanently. They usually have a capacity of 12 gallons or less, and can be a great addition to your above deck or below deck fuel tank for extra fun on the water. It is important when deciding on a portable fuel tank that you purchase a high-quality one that meets the EPA requirements. Portable fuel tanks have to have the correct ventilation and flow as permanent fuel tanks to ensure safety of all passengers.
Fuel Fittings and Hardware
Whatever you need to fix your marine fuel tank - we are here to help. You may not need to replace your whole fuel system, but there may be some fittings or hardware that could use some upgrades. Whether you need to replace what you already have or upgrade your fuel fittings, getting the correct one is important. Anything Boating is here to help ensure you are getting the right thing the first time.
A fuel pump is essential to your boat's motor and how your boat runs. Your fuel pump helps move your fuel from the tank to the injection system and can affect how your motor burns fuel, ultimately affecting how much power your boat has. You can choose between a mechanical and electric fuel pump. For higher fuel pressures, an electric fuel pump is recommended.
A fuel caddy is like your own personal gas pump - perfect for filling up boats. Fuel caddies are designed to prevent spillage, and gives you the control to start and stop the gas flow as needed. Fuel caddies are portable, and usually rollable to make for easy access to fuel up your boat!
