Your boat's fuel efficiency can have an impact on its performance, your rides, and your wallet. Read this post to find out how you can make the most out of the fuel you pour into your marine vehicle. 

How to Save Fuel With Your Marine Vehicle

Being wasteful is never a good thing, especially when it comes to money. That's why it is a smart idea to consider your boat's fuel efficiency. If you discover that it isn't up to your standards, follow the tips in this post to improve it.

A properly maintained marine engine can save you a lot of money. Call Go Synthetic Lubes at (262) 696-9506 to learn how AMSOIL's marine synthetic oil in Milwaukee County will benefit your boat and your wallet.  

Mind the Propellers

What happens when the tires in your vehicle are deflated, are too small, or are in poor condition? They can drag, they can skid, and they can waste a ton of fuel. Well, the same thing happens with the propellers in your marine engine. If they're not the right fit, or in perfect condition, they won't help your boat perform as you'd like. That's why, you should go through the tips that BBlades mentions to ensure you choose the right propeller for your marine engine.

Ride Lightly

Often times, boaters use their marine vehicles as storage, meaning they keep anything and everything in them. Unfortunately, this could be costing you a lot of money, since the heavier the boat, the more fuel it will use up to move you around. That's why, if you want to increase the fuel efficiency in your marine engine, you should consider what you carry on it.

Opt for an Effective Fuel Additive

A good and effective fuel additive can help you make the most out of the money and fuel you put into your marine vehicle, since it basically works to increase the amount of miles you can go before needing a refill. For that reason, you should research the market fully to find a fuel additive that will actually help you save a ton on gas.

Maintain the Engine Perfectly

A faulty engine can be dangerous, unreliable, and very wasteful. That's why it is imperative that you ensure your marine engine works perfectly. To that end, it's suggested that you have a professional mechanic inspect it at least once a year, so they can assess its condition, provide any needed repairs, and replace its synthetic oil.

Keep your marine engine strong with AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Marine Engine Oil. Contact Go Synthetic Lubes at (262) 696-9506 to place an order on the most effective marine synthetic oil in Milwaukee County. 

Go at Optimum Speed

Speeding on your boat can be incredibly wasteful, since there is a point at which the amount of wind and water resistance you face is too much, and your engine has to work extra to keep speeding. However, there is an optimum speed at which you can go that will help you advance without wasting fuel. To learn what your boat's optimum speed is, talk to your mechanic or refer to the owner's manual.

Try Not to Stall

Having your engine on while your boat is simply floating on the water is the textbook definition of wasteful. That's why, if you really want to be smart about how you use your fuel, you should avoid stalling at all costs. Only have the engine on when you're ready to go, or when there's a need for it to be on.

Keep Your Marine Vehicle Clean

The trash and filth on your boat can also have an impact in how effectively it employs fuel, since it can eat away at its components and hinder its performance. For that reason, it is imperative that you keep your marine vehicle clean. For example, ensure that there aren't any barnacles or algae growing on the hull.

Care for Your Boat

The last tip is to care for your marine vehicle in general. The better you are at keeping it in mint condition, the better it will perform, the more fuel efficient it will be, and the longer its life expectancy will be. For instance, you should remember to inspect the trim tabs regularly (if you use them), as failing to do so can cause your boat to drag and waste even more fuel.
