[CA] [CA11] Axiom 9 will not display both fuel tanks

RE: [CA11] Axiom 9 will not display both fuel tanks

See Argus's comment above. In short it appears that the Mercury NMEA 2000 Gateway may be outputting an Instance ID other than 1 within the Fluid Level PGN (127505) transmitted for your starboard tank. While you can certainly verify with the aid of a NMEA 2000 analyzer which Instance ID is being transmitted, the simpler solution may be to configure your MFD's Boat Details to specify that the MFD has five tanks instead of two. After doing so, add a new page to the Dashboard containing half a dozen data cells and then configure the newly created page to display the following data items:
- Fuel->Tank 1
- Fuel->Tank 2
- Fuel->Tank 3
- Fuel->Tank 4
- Fuel->Tank 5

If your Mercury system is transmitting the Fluid Level PGN (127505) for the starboard tank in the same manner as did Argus's, then I suspect that you will find that Fuel->Tank 3 is populated with the data for your starboard tank. Any information concerning how to change the Instance IDs transmitted within 127505 PGNs by the Mercury NMEA 2000 Gateway, MercMonitor, etc. would need to come from Mercury Marine.
