A78 Fuel Management Data not Repeated on i70 Instruments

A78 Fuel Management Data not Repeated on i70 Instruments
I have an a78 MFD with two i70's on STNG, with a Lowrance #000-11517-001 Fuel Flow Sensor that is providing good, accurate data on fuel flow rate to both the a78 and the i70's, but the other fuel manager data is not populating on the i70's. I get all the data on the a78 MFD, but only get fuel flow rate on the i70's. I have updated the a78 to v17 and the i70's are v3.05.
How do I get the a78 Fuel Management data (estimated fuel remaining, efficiency, and fuel used) to repeat on the i70's?

RE: A78 Fuel Management Data not Repeated on i70 Instruments
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum William,

Thanks for pointing out this deficiency, as I have observed it on my own vessel as well. While no investigation has yet been launched, I suspect the issue is rooted in the LightHouse II software (v17.45 at the time of this response) not transmitting fuel related data calculated by the Fuel Management feature to the SeaTalkng/NMEA 2000 backbone. A feature request will be logged to consider this feature to be included within a future a/c/e/eS/gS-Series MFD and/or i70 MFID software update.

Thank you for the information! The fuel management data is excellent information and I would like to see it on my i70's if possible in the future.
