Fuel Transfer Between Tanks

Postby fishheadbarandgrill on Thu Dec 06, 2018 8:53 am

I’m a new 2011 R29 owner. Do all RTs have the capability to transfer fuel from the genset tank to the main tank?

Thanks,
Bob

Hello Bob,

The newer Rangers don't have two tanks, just one main tank. The R-29 classic was the only boat from the factory with two tanks installed.

Congratulations on the new boat!

Thanks,

Thanks Kenny. How about fuel transfer capability on the classic tugs. Was that a standard feature?

There may be a handful out there that didn't have that capability but that would have been early on. Most were able to transfer fuel. Are you having issues transferring?

No problems. I recently purchased a 2011 R29 and was wondering if fuel transfer was possible.
