twin tank fuel gauge..

Can you get such a think as a twin tank fuel gauge so I could read both tanks off a single gauge?

I know the other option is a switch but I was just wondering if you could get such a thing?

If you use N2K senders then depending on your plotter/navman you should be able to view values for both tanks

What about the Lowrance LMF 200/400? will they just display dual tanks?

In fact your new merc monitor can be set up to display 2 tanks, or at least the twin engine model can. The wema senders would have to be connected to the monitor via a mercury boat harness if you haven't got one already.

Ps "wema" in predictive text comes out as "enema" - always pays to check before hitting the send button )

Lowrance 200 or 400 will only display nmea2000. The simplest might be to get a pair of converters to convert the resistance data from your senders into nmea2k data. You could then feed that into your lmf gauges or plotter.
