So I've been searching for a nice fuel flow gauge for the Montauk 170. I've decided, after much debate, to go with the LOWRANCE LMF 200. I know I need the guage and sensor but I'm having trouble finding the "backbone" to connect the two. Can anyone point me in the direction to purchase all I need, all in one kit if pssible, to get the fuel flow gauge up and running?

While it appears that you need the gauge, cable and sensor, it is not clear which ones.

I think this is one of those items where you should go into Dogstar or West Marine and have the tech guys give you the right parts. There are so many kinds of cables and sensors, even I got confused in my search.

It looks like a lot of parts/$$$ just to track gas.

Thanks Phil for confirming. I did see one thread where it was claimed that everything came in the box. I can see now this is most likley not true. It does seem like a lot of money to start the NMEA 2000 system. I could always go with the lower cost, dedicated solution of the Northstar F210. What I like about the Lowrance NMEA 2000 system is that I can add other gauges over time to the backbone once I have it in place.

Have you considered a call to Lowrance? They, better than anyone, can probably answer your question.

Sure, once my CW resource dries up, which it usually has by the time someone posts "did you consider calling <enter company name here>"
