Q: How low of a flow can your flow meter measure? A: In normal circumstances, our flow meter for gasoline measures flows down to about 5 liters per hour. On a boat with more than 100 hp the flow measurements tends to get started at 5 knots. This varies on the engine type, engine size, boat size and so on. Our flow meter for diesel handles flows of less than 1 liter per hour.
