Comments about Fireboy Xintex M-2A Fuel Vapor Monitor:
I've had this installed for over 2 years now, and I am VERY happy with it.
I have an old Volvo MB12A, and although this is a reliable engine, it has a new after-market carburator that floods easily. I put one lead of the detector in the engine compartment just under the carb, and it works perfectly, warning me if i flood the carb. Long-term, i will fix the flooding problem, but the most important thing is how it reassures people.
The first thing most people say about gasoline engines is "Isn't it Dangerous?" by pointing out the fume detector, I reassure future owners if i want to sell the boat. Having a second lead which i can install in the galley has allowed me to buy a butane stove (i store the cannisters in a vented compartment when not in use), knowing that i am covered for any dangerous fumes in the boat.
