[TG] [TG11] Estimated fuel level and distance to empty at zero

RE: [TG11] Estimated fuel level and distance to empty at zero
Hello Mark, sorry for the delay. I've been out doing dealer training.

You don't/can't enter Est. Fuel Remaining: that's the one that's calculated from the other data either entered (capacity, fills) and or received (fuel usage.) To use Fuel Manager effectively you need to:

  1. Enter the tank capacity
  2. Choose or detect the fuel messages being received (not receiving 127497 is ok and quite normal, lots of engines don't output this message)
  3. Turn on Fuel Manager
  4. Brim the tank and do 'Set all tanks full'
  5. Remember to record whenever you add fuel to the tank in future with either 'Set all tanks full' or 'Add partial fill'. If you lose track/forget to record a fill, wait until you next brim the tank and then do 'Set all tanks full' then to re-zero the calculations.

If you do all this and you have incorrect results then you have incorrect incoming data, and the log-file will show what is wrong. You can post log-files back here as attachments, or upload them to a file-sharing service such as Box.com, Dropbox, Google Drive, MS OneDrive, Cloud etc. and post the link here.

Thanks,
Tom
