Re: How low can you run your fuel tank
I found out the hard way that one should never trust the fuel gauge. Ours was reading 1/4 tank and I was going to fill up the next day.... when we ran out of fuel.
If you're going to empty the fuel tank and you have a diesel furnace, remember to shut off the diesel to the furnace so that you don't drain it and therefore have to bleed it. Luckily I can fit inside my starboard cockpit locker, because that's how I had to access the furnace intake to bleed it.
