with any boat, regardless of portable tank or built-in tankRegarding outboard motors with a portable gas tank. How do you insure that you have enough gas to get back to the ramp?
Make a mark halfway on the tank and keep an eye on the gas level?
Bring another container of gas?
Ah, makes sense. Thanks!with any boat, regardless of portable tank or built-in tank
you use the rule of 1/3'rds
1/3 the fuel to get where you are going
1/3 the fuel to get back
1/3 the fuel as reserve because wind/current/etc.
so at 1/3 of the tank used, or just under 3/8 of a tank, turn around and head back.
