What type of fuel is recommended?
Regulator, in accordance with Yamaha recommendations, recommends 89 Octane fuel with no more than 10% Ethanol content.
Does my boat have two fuel tanks? There are two fills.
All new Regulators only have one gas tank and one gas fill. Older Regulators have two gas fills and one tank. Older Regulators with three gas fills have auxiliary tanks. The only exception is the 30 Express, which has two tanks and two fills.
Are the fuel tanks aluminum or plastic?
Regulators have always used aluminum fuel tanks. Note: even older fuel hoses were ethanol approved.
My fuel gauge isn't working. What do I do? How do I check my fuel tank sending unit?
First, check the sending unit. The sending unit is located under the inspection cover near the tackle center or livewell/tackle center. Remove pink wire from sending unit and ground to top of the fuel tank. The fuel gauge should read with key in the on position. If the fuel gauge reads full, your sending unit is defective. If the fuel gauge does not have a reading, your gauge is defective. We recommend you bring your boat to your dealer.
What size transducer fits my pocket?

My boat has three batteries. What charges these electronic batteries?
Yamaha uses an isolator wire from the engines to charge the electronics battery without losing charging capacity to the cranking batteries.
What type/size of batteries should I buy for my boat?
Yamaha recommends a Cranking-Type battery that can have distilled water added to its cells when necessary.
Dual Purpose Cranking/Deep-Cycle batteries can be used if they meet the below specifications and water can be added to the cells.
Maintenance-Free sealed or Gel Cell batteries are not recommended. They may not be compatible with Yamaha’s charging system.
