Any of you, ever use a 5510 with a 201 Senser cruisemaster flow scan. I pick a new one up today, still in its sealed box for $50 . I thought it was a good buy. Was it?

Walt, you picked up a helluva deal there! NIB, that unit went for $400+ before it was discontinued. Don't remember if the sensor came with barb fittings or not. If not, 3/8" brass barbs you can get at HD. Easy Peasy hookup, but you'll need to build a 4-wire harness for between the sender and the gauge. This is it, correct?

Hey Bob thanks for the answer. I thought if anyone had used or seen one it would be you. Yep that's it. No barbs, but like you said HD. Will have them. Grabed it off criegs list. I almost passed on it, since I had not seen this unit. Thanks again. :605_thumbs_up:

Follow the instructions about dialing in your guage, you can get really accurate fuel burn numbers. Ask Bruce, you'll throttle off the Floscan over the tach...

I have that same gauge. Works great. And yes it becomes your cruise setting gauge. You'd be surprised at how difference in fuel burn a small power setting change can make. The fuel flow gives a better idea of how much load your putting on your engine than the tach. The reason is the engine may be turning x rpms but it is working harder if it us burning more fuel than it normally does at a certain rpm. It was the fuel flow gauge that clued me in on what turned out to be a power pack problem.

Thanks Bruce for the input. Now as to which boat to put it on, learn to use it, then get another flow scan meter to put on the other. I got a feeling this will be one of the best gauges to use.
