thanks! That is what I wanted to know! Not the gas mileage of course, the model!

Livorsi Marine has its own version of them with an anolog display to match the Livorsi line. They utilize the FloScan sensor. It is very important to match the correct HP to the gauge. visit www.livorsi.com

Hey Jeff32,

This is the formula for getting the right gauge not what you are going to burn per hour..Type of boat and weight and conditions will dictate what you will actually burn..The only way to calculate the amount you burn is to fill the boat up, run about it down to half and check the gauge with what it takes to fill it back up and adjust the floscan to match..You can pm me if you want more info...good luck
