RE: [CA11] fuel trip

The Estimated Fuel Remaining data item is not calculated based upon fueled sender data. It is calculated based upon fuel consumption data provide by a fuel flow monitor or engine system. Tank level sensors are notoriously inaccurate in identifying the quantity of fuel left in a boat's tank. As long as the marine electronics are switched on whenever the engines are operated, you should find the fuel manager to provide a very accurate estimate of the remaining amount of fuel. To to test, press the tanks full, configure to Fuel manager to indicate that you topped off the tanks, drive the boat for an hour or so, and then top them up again. You should find that the amount of fuel required to top off the tanks after the second fill should be equal to the difference of total tank capacity which you specified within the fuel manager and the Estimated Fuel Remaining.
