          Comments about Marine Technologies Surface-Mount Gasoline Fume Detector:

          OK Product and easy to install. My only complaint is that the alarm sound is not very loud. With all the noise on the boat while running it can be easily overlooked. Even mounted on the dash. I think a gas detector is a most for any inboard boat.

              Comments about Marine Technologies Surface-Mount Gasoline Fume Detector:

              Be aware wiring to connect console and sensor unit has 4 pin connector plugs installed which will require about a 5/8" space to pass thru. Advantage-you can just plug it together, no stripping, no crimping, no screws to tighten.

                  Been using this now for 2 years and I enjoy have the peace of mind seeing the green indicator while on the water. I know it works as it alarmed after I changed my fuel filter
