I contacted Dynon about my D-180 fuel gage problem (see post #1 above) and they tell me none of the software engineers who designed the D-180 are working at Dynon on anymore. Dynon also tells me they have powered up several more D-180's in-house and none of them have the yellow/red boxes around the digital number for gallons remaining in tank.

So, maybe I don't remember this correctly... Can anyone verify that they see yellow square and red square & red square blinking around gallons remaining digital number for a D-180? Also, do you get visual warning on bottom of screen for minimal gallons remaining (in my case - 4 gallons)? And while we're at it... do you get audible low fuel warning in your headset?

Maybe I'm getting too old for flying...
