Low Fuel Level Pop-up Nuisance and Alarm

Is there any way to turn off the fuel level & alarm pop-up display? I have two flat 30 gallon shallow fuel tanks and when either one of the fuel tanks get about half empty I start getting pop-up displays on low fuel level that you have to X out of pop-up to clear the screen when the fuel is sloshing around. Every time you take off or shut down and in between I'm getting this pop-up/alarm. I start getting this alarm around the half tank mark..This is very annoying and could be a safety issue while trying to touch screen to clear pop-up while running 50 MPH across the water. The fuel level pop-up covers almost the entire screen, keeping you from seeing gauges. Is there any way to turn this feature off or put a delay timer to keep alarm from coming in so much?  I'm not the only one having this problem. The boat manufacture of my boat has been trying to get Evinrude to fix this. Is any one else having this problem?

Hi

 

You do not have to post the same question multiple times here on E-NATION

 

We will refer your question to our specialists. Being after hours and with the upcoming weekend it may be a few days wait.

 

Thank you for taking time to write to us.
