Dashboard on new Axion12
I have new Axion 12 c/w sea talk throughout he boat.
I would like to connect fuel gauges into the dashboard.
I have dual tanks with WEMA 30-240 ohm sending units and Suzuki fluid converters.

Are the systems compatible?
Suzuki digital displace totally inaccurate and totalizing fuel burn from mains leaves me with no idea how much fuel the kicker has used.

Hope someone can help. TKS

RE: Dashboard on new Axion12
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Doug,

Assuming that the Axiom MFD(s) are presently interfaced to the vessel's two main propulsion engines, the only way that I know of to account for the fuel which is additionally consumed by the kicker would be one of the following:
- the kicker engine (i.e. simply treated as a third engine) would interfaced (click here to view the FAQ addressing how to interface engines to an Axiom MFD) to the SeaTalkng / NMEA 2000 backbone to which the MFD has been interfaced as a spur.
- a NMEA 2000 fuel flow sensor (may additionally require a display produced by the sensor's manufacturer) is installed within the kicker's fuel line and has been initialized to NMEA 2000 Instance ID 2 (0=port engine, 1= starboard engine). Raymarine's Fuel Manager feature will then account for fuel consumed by each of the vessel's three engines and report Estimated Total Fuel Remaining.
