Reading the thread on heating got me wondering. The new boat has a diesel heater - it also has two fuel tanks and presumably ithe heater is connected to just one tank. Therefore can I only use the 60/40 diesel in the tank that also supplys heater as well as engine, or would I get away with using it on both?

I really wouldn't worry, it's the total fuel used that the 60 /40 split is based on so it really doesn't matter, also the allowance is not just for the heater but also hot water and battery charging. Just use the

60 / 40 when you fill up. The tanks probably have a balance pipe anyway so are effectively one tank.
