Fantastic fuel!

We have two good size fuel tanks on Noccy which means we can carry 100 gallons or 380 litres of fuel. One is underneath the v-berth where the humans sleep…

and the other is underneath the settee on the port side.

To check the level of fuel we use a dipstick. Although we keep a record of how much fuel we have and what we’ve used, I still make the humans check the levels before a big trip. We use roughly 3 litres an hour so we have over 120 hours of motoring available.

The fuel is filtered as it goes into the tank, it then goes through two racor filters and finally it’s filtered again as it goes into the engine so paws crossed nothing nasty should ever make its way into the engine.

I think it’s pretty pawesome!

  2. Think, though, how many hours of travel those big bedsheet things can give!

    Curious, can your humans hear the fuel slaushing around in the tank under the V-berth when they are sleeping?

  12. Bailey you bring back so many old memories on my fathers sail boat! Memories of the filters on the fuel tank were so lost until now. You make my heart sing! It’s a good thing your humans have you. I only wish we had had someone like yourself on our boat to help out, Im sure things would have been a lot more efficient. Licks, Karen
