Fuel flow


Wondering if it´s possible to connect a gauge showing amount of fuel/trip

I´ve ordered a 75Hp e-tec to be delivered and I´m gonna use it with a portable gas tank therefor I´m not interested in seeing the actual amount of gas in tank but it would be sweet to be able to see how much gas I´ve spent for a trip

i.e I´d like to be able to reset a trip meter and then start measuring the gas flow and se how much I´ve consumed

(then I´d be able to calculate how much further I could travel before refueling even when using a portable gas tank.


Also - is it possible to install the motor yourself and start it up wothout having access to software

- thinking about oil priming etc for the first start


best regards
