I have a Suzuki connected to the NEMA2000 network and it alone is super. I also have the Simrad Fluid Level Sensor analog to NEMA2000 device that my fuel tank sensor is connected to and it works great.

When I fill up these are within 0.2 gallons consistently.

If you go Offshore I recommend both!

With my setup I calculate fuel two ways and both are displayed on my Simrad evo2. I have the amount in the tank from the sensor and also what Suzuki says is my fuel burned since fill up subtracted from a full tank, compare those amounts to fuel added as a double check and I’m confident I’ll never run out of fuel.

If you stay inshore one way might be ok, but Offshore I like having two methods to determine my fuel on board and I display both on my MFD all the time.
