Decision time for fuel monitoring.
Working on a 24' boat with MerCruiser sterndrive (carbureted 5.7)and trying to decide which way to go in terms of a Multifunctiongauge for fuel management.
This is a analog motor so a NMEA 2000 gauge like a Lowrance LMF200would only be useful as a fuel gauge and fuel management, maybe hourmeter. I could get a signal converter but that strikes me as over-complicating basic analog gauges for oil and engine temp.
A N2K would allow MPG to display on the plotter where as theFloscan would only be on the gauge.
Cost is similar and maybe slightly cheaper w/N2K as I would justbuy a LMF for $170.00 plus the fuel sensor for $200.00 where as theFloscan 9000 is over $500.00.
I have a hour meter and tach so don’t have buy those.
What say you guys that have crossed this bridge
