Fuel oil is one of natural resources owned by land where the stock is very limited so caused many companies was trying to efficiency the use. Vessel requires fuel oil enough to move a main engine properly. Today with stores of fuel oil prices depleting and the fuel price increases make a company used a flow meter to control the fuel consumption so can be checked the real fuel oil used on ships while operating. Expected after using flow meter discharging fuel controllable and can be reduced to be more efficient in use. Issues discussed is the number of fuel consumption in real used when a vessel is in operation, the way which the control of fuel better used manually or used by flow meters, and finally we got the outcome of the comparison of fuel consumption manually and when using used a flow meter. Methodology research conducted is the descriptive method and quantitative analysis of data processing literature and from the vessel operation data. The result is after using the flow meter there is efficiency of fuel oil consumption Titan 03 is 9.833 % and Titan 05 is 21.220%.
