Vetus Fuel Systems


ABC Powermarine are able to supply the complete fuel system for your boat, right through from the deck filler cap, through the tank and water separator to the engine.

Vetus rigid fuel tanks are manufactured of Linear Polythene and they are much less liable to explode than metal tanks and there is no possibility of rust formation. The fuel level can be seen from the outside; the most reliable check there is! Flexible spare tanks for diesel fuel are available, providing that extra capacity which means extra cruising range.

Before delivery to the engine, the fuel should be filtered through a water separator: one small drop of water may cause blockage of the fuel pump, cutting off the fuel supply. Water may also be the cause of rust in the pump or the injectors, resulting in blockage and expensive repairs. A Vetus water separator / fuel fiter is therefore certainly no luxury, but a necessity.

Rigid Fuel Tanks

These tanks can be ordered with a choice of three connection kits which include an aluminium cover, 38mm/50mm filler, 16mm vent connector, blind cover for fuel sender, return fuel line fitting and fuel supply connector for 8mm, 10mm or 15mm. A tank interconnection kit is also available which allows twin tank installation.
