Bayfield 25 Fuel Tank Size
I'm guessing the 10 gal. capacity is Imperial measure since reading further along, the literature we have says 45L.

Now how bout someone getting the goods on bio-diesel on the water? All the water taxis in Newport harbor advetise they run on it. We better take hold of that issue before the government does, they've screwed the pumpout stations, and manditory holding tank certifations here in Rhode Island.

Polishing fuel is basically taking the fuel from the tank and passing it through fuel filters over and over again to remove as much of the crud and particulates from the fuel as possible. It usually involves a fuel pump and two or more fuel filters. The first is usually a 30 micron water separating filter, and the second is usually a five micron filter or so.
This is done to help prevent fuel-contaminant related issues when the boat is using the fuel. This is especially important in bad weather, when the motion of the boat may bring crud off the bottom of the tank.

|SVDistantStar||Ours is a 1982. 10 gallons sounds about right since i overflowed the tank at 8 gallons last time i filled it up.|

Bayfield 25 Fuel Tank Capacity
Our B25, according to the specs, has a 40L tank (10 gal. approx. assuming they're working in US gallons and not imperial.)
From what we have calculated from fill-ups, known motoring hours etc., this proves correct.
What year is your B25 - judging by your picture, with the 2 windows, it is prior 1984 or so ?.... Ours is a 1986. We trailered it to Florida from southwestern Ontario last year. What a hoot. Would do it again anytime as long as we had a solid month on the water to make the effort worthwhile.

Thanks for your interest
No afront taken, espeically on a rainy day for you. In my novice state, it would be helpful if you could define what "polishing diesel fuel" involves.

|SVDistantStar||B32, how big is your fuel tank? Ive also got a bayfield 25 and dont know the tank size. It looks to be the stock tank in the bilge. You run your motor about the same speeds i run mine. I knew it hardly used any fuel.|

Yanmar 1GM Fuel Consumption
We have a Bayfield 25 with a 1GM Yanmar.
We seem to average about 1L/hr on the motor at 2700 to 3000 RPM.
We don't have a fuel gauge. We dip the tank regularly.
We figure we can do a work week (in a manner of speaking) on one tank (40L).
Hope this helps a little.

Pump out at end of season
Thanks for the advice.
In my case, I think with a 12 gallon tank we may have an excess of fuel in the tank at the end of the season and at least some of it may be 1.5 to 2 years old.
I had considered just having something like 6 gallons in the tank and depend on a fuel/water separator to handle any moisture that might accumulate but I'm not sure that is the right way to go about managing the fuel inventory either.
