nmea 2000 fuel metering

we are in the process of refitting our boat I have ordered a simrad go9 to and the is42 gauge to go with it I can remember on my last go7 there was a page that came up with fuel used. but I never bothered with it as the boat had the smartcraft gauge so I was monitoring fuel usage through that the dilemma I have is that when we are on holiday the boat sits on a swing mooring and either way I have to handball fuel out to it with a tender so my choices are the removable fuel tanks ie hulk or a larger tank that I can get to fit in the console so can anybody tell me if the simrad paired with the is42 gauge be used to countdown the level of a tank I should also mention the engine is a Honda 150 that is getting linked into the nmea system

I haven't setup a Honda, but I've done Etecs & a Suzuki, they are basically the same. So assuming that the Honda can be selected as the "fuel remaining source" in the fuel setup on the Simrad, then it "should" work. What year is the engine & is it fully NMEA 2000 certified?

the engine is a 2018 and it does display fuel consumption on the go9 but I still can't get it to display fuel remaining I had a look a bit further into stand it seems I need a fuel data manager which is basically a small storage device that builds up the data for use later on am I on the right track or am I a mile off answers on a postcard

Yup, sounds like you need an EP 85 module ( Sodís law, Iíve recently sold one thatís been kicking around in the shed for years) some of the recent engines now have them built into the gauges, but others need it adding on.

I bought Daveís one and it worked perfectly on a 2018 Honda 100hp. I did have to up date the firmware on the 85r to the latest revision. If your buying new it should be good to go.
