Default Suzuki Multi Function Gauge

Hi,
I'm the happy owner of a Suzuki 140 HP with the new digital Multi Function Gauge. The manual says that the "used fuel" can be reset by pressing the up/down buttons at the same time. I have tried that but that did'nt work out the way that it should


Could anyone please explain, then I would be more than happy :-)

Hi! And welcome to the forum!

Which country are you located?

The reason I ask is because Suzuki in the USA uses a different colour MFD engine data display, and the one in your photo looks very much like the one supplied to Europe, Australia and the rest of the world, not the one supplied in the USA. The USa model is based on the Simrad IS-35 display, yours looks like the Suzuki OEM model.

So that would mean that people here will not be able to advise you as they dont know that display. It is only new here in Australia so not many people are familiar with them, myself included. Having said that, most of these displays are fairly similar. Go into the menu and see if you can find a fuel menu, there should be an option you can then select to refill the tank.

Otherwise I think it might be best to talk to your local Suzuki dealer and get them to walk you through how to reset fuel.

Ok, then the gauge you have is not available in the USA.

What do you mean by "reset fuel used for the trip"??

If you start off with a full tank, and use some on a trip, the system will subtract the fuel used from the total fuel to tell you how much remains in the tank. Is that what you mean by "trip fuel?"

I don't know if you will get the option to start a new trip without adding some fuel to the tank - in other words, use some fuel today, record that and keep it saved, then start another trip and record that separately.

You usually have 3 options:

1. Refill the tank to full.

2. Add some fuel to the tank but not fill it all the way up to the top.

Both options 1 and 2 reset the fuel used from that tank between fills.

3. You can also reset "seasonal fuel used" and this feature keeps track of fuel used over the whole season. Usually this is done once per year.

As I said, go into the menu system, find the fuel menu, then the refuel menu, there will likely be some options there to select from. Pick the one that suits you.

There's a possibility to see how much fuel you have used (total fuel consumption). The manual says:Indicates the total fuel consumption of the outboard motor after resetting.
The manual also says: Resetting the display value. The total fuel consumption may be reset by pressing and holding arrow up/down buttons until a buzzer sound is heard.


I have tried to act according to what the manual says - but it doesn't work, so I thought perhaps someone here did have the same display and could explain what he do according to the fuel-reset

I just had to figure this out for myself and if you hold one of the arrows it will reset the gauge.
