Re: fuel usage

When I got the boat, the hour meter had broken at 3800 hours. I've put in a new meter, and added 200 more. So that's 4000 hours minimum, plus the unaccounted for ones! So it's hard to criticize Kutota for their efforts. The engine seems to be going strong, no signs of wear.

Universal did undersize the heat exchanger - so effectively it's a 16hp engine, capable of a 5 minute burst at 24hp, before the engine overheats. One day I'll get around to putting the bigger heat exchanger in.
