OXE Diesel Consumes up to 42% less fuel
The price of fuel is having a major affect on the marine market in both price and accessibility. As motor boats have a poor fuel economy compared to road vehicles, a decrease in fuel price contributes to a significant reduction in the running costs for boat operators.
The OXE Diesel power head is a well-proven diesel engine designed by the automotive industry. As the OXE Diesel design raises the gearbox above the water line it allows for a slimmer design under the waterline. This design is optimized for reducing drag thus reducing the fuel consumption further, increasing range and enabling longer intervals between refueling.
Reduced fuel consumption translates to increased operating range, longer refueling intervals and overall reduced fuel costs. It has resulted in a product with up to 42% lower fuel consumption than a modern pleasure craft petrol outboard of equivalent horse power and giving more than 60% increased range.
Tony Kortens from Landing craft UK LTD states: "The OXE is faultless; the smoothness; power; and thrust of the engines are amazing. We can achieve speeds of 20 knots in a boat that weighs in excess of ten tonnes. The OXE’s excellent fuel economy shows with all three engines running to their maximum we have a fuel burn of 90 liters per hour which is phenomenal."
