I am surprised that no one else has a built in fuel monitoring system or do people rely on separate fuel gauges?
Funny you should say that, because when I was doing my investigations into fuel monitoring etc, I posed this very question to my local Raymarine dealer as well as Garmin. Both the replies were similar and quite acceptable.
' We stick to what we do best and leave others to manufacture these devices' - fair enough.
I also looked into the brilliant Floscan
systems and was quoted the thick end of £2000.00
for my twin setup. I opted for the Navman system which I installed in less than an hour (very simple - and I like simple). The total cost was £152.00 for the Navman 500i and the fuel kit (for twins) was £64.00. I have only used it once so cannot comment as yet.
If I can offer you further advice, and that is to get a basic float system in your tank with a reliable gauge initially. The fancy bits can come later.
