Default Fuel management systems

Guys,
What is the hot set up for fuel management systems?
My Yamaha gauge system does not have it. Seems like the choices are Navman and Flo-Scan. I'm running a 250 single Yamaha.I have 142 gallons below deck. Dont want to be penny wise and pound foolish and end up with something that does not work well. Any experience with either of the the two. I like the idea of the Navman being digital and smaller.

Your choices are:

1) Analog GPH readout, as in the Floscan Cruisemaster 5000 series.
2) Digital GPH readout, as in the Floscan Cruisemaster 7000 series, the Navman, or the Standard FF41.
3) Digital GPH readout, with additional MPG readout (with either speedo or GPS input), as in the Floscan Cruisemaster 9000 series, or the Yamaha Fuel Management system.

I wanted a nice digital readout of GPH, and also wanted MPG. However, the additional cost to get MPG could not be justified (I'll use a small calculator), so I purchased and installed the FF41.

Great little instrument. Small hole. Good price after rebate. Lots of good comments about the Navman/FF41 (both made by Navman) here on THT.
