Trying to figure out if I can wire 1 Navman fuel flow meter and hook it up so both tanks can be used with one gauge? I know I currently use one(double throw?) switch and one gauge for both tanks. Anyone know if this is possible??? thanx in advance-

You sure can!!! I have 2 tanks on my boat and 1 standard FF41, the same unit as the navman. I have the fuel sensor in the main fuel line after the racor before it goes into the engine. It works fine!!!

Thanx for the reply John, do you hook it up to your single gauge and reset the navman when you switch tanks ?

Miles Offshore: I usually make a mental note of the amount I used from the first tank when I switch. But with that guage you can reset the trip total and not reset the total used. I guess if you wanted to monitor things that close that would be the way to go. My boat has 2- 60 gallon tanks and I usually switch about midway thru the trip, I am more concerned with the total burn and have a good idea how much I used from the first tank. It is not hooked up to a gas guage but too the main fuel line so it reads the total no matter what tank is used!!!
