Fuel Flow Meter

Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a good low volume differential fuel flow meter for small diesel engines. Semi-permanent, but would be an item I would take with me to the next boat.

And most importantly, inexpensive.

I have the Maretron setup, consisting of two flow sensors and an interface box, for N2K network.

I believe it's cheaper than a stand-alone Floscan type system, but there is no truly cheap solution for this AFAIK.

Re: Fuel Flow Meter

I have been asking for a 250 setup for Christmas for the past 5 years and Santa never brings it.

Yes, Maretron is really how I would like to go, but the setup I want is worth two months more of working than cruising.
