    Default Fuel consumption of 14L Series 60 Detroit Diesel engines

    Hello all,

    I am looking for some document, manual or guideline for fuel consumption of 14L Series 60 Detroit Diesel engines. I searched the internet but couldn't find this information on any website!

    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers

    The fuel consumption is so application driven, even if you had access to Detroit Diesel dynamometer charts you still might not get the information you're interested in.

    For example; fuel consumption of a 14L Series 60 will be quite different in a class 8 tractor pulling a 53' dry van trailer loaded with 40,000lbs than it would be in a 30' sedan sport fisherman with a flybridge, crew of three and gear. And, boats typically demand more fuel due to frictional losses at the hull than a truck rolling 18 wheels.

    If it is boat power specs you need then contacting the manufacturer of similar vessels might get you some good ballpark estimates if the series 60 is a power option n their line.

    Good luck.
