Default Floscan meter - Wash Down Pump

I am thinking of putting a Floscan meter on my 25’ Stamas with a 225 Yamaha OX 66. Does anyone have any experience with these things? Do they help run a boat more efficiently? What model do you recommend?

I also plan on putting on a wash down pump I saw a post on the Boating board. I think Thom stated the better pump may be a Groco C60 12v. Is this a practical pump for a 25’ boat or is one of the Shurflo pumps adequate. I will be putting on a accumulator.

I like to do things to the best side when I do these projects.

Thanks for all the help in the past


Happy Holidays

I have the Jabsco Parmax 4, it has worked flawlessly for 3 seasons. I heard that the Shurflo pumps had reliability issues. The groco is definitely the Cadillac, though.
I would get the Navman fuel meter over the FloScan. many good comments on this board about that unit. I plan on installing one over the winter.

Oh Yes yes yes, Navman over Flowscan, unless you like throwing $200 extra at something for no reason.

I prefer the Floscan over the Navman. The cutout is odd, but with the analog dial instead of the digital readout, I find it easier to recognize what is happening. Especially with two motors. Not sure I would see as much benefit with a single motor.

The floscan is much more money, and won't save you any more fuel than the Navman.
