Hi I just bought a new boat to me, a 40 ft, 1995 Beneteau
, that has a Perkins
, the engine
hours are a bit of a mistory, but I believe it to be in excess of 5000 hours. The boat was used in the BVI fleet for 8 years. Since I bought the boat I have put about 75 hours on the engine, it runs great, starts great but uses about a quart of oil
every 15 hours. I also have some questions about the fuel
I have been using. I have used mostly fuel
from a dock
fuel, but I have used auto fuel from a gas station. I was told by a friend that the fuel used for road use does not have enough surfer in it and should not be used in my engine. Any advise from anyone who knows is greatly appreciated.
