I have been trying to figure out if there is a product that I can plug into the my engines diagnostic port that will talk to my Garmin Network or a separate instrument so I can read my fuel consumption in real time, all the time, on the water. I have not looked for about a year. Does anyone know some ways I can do this?

Thanks
David

I have an old B & G Engine Monitor gauge that replaces every gauge on the console and includes instantaneous gas consumption. It plugs into the diagnostic connector on both engines. Unfortunately it is no longer sold by B & G. You might be able to find a used one or there is an instrument rebuild service in Florida that had their remaining parts. Another choice is the Marine engine monitoring software that runs on a PC and saves all of the historical information. It costs $695 plus a cheap notebook PC and I was going to purchase this until we were able to fix our B & G gauge.
