help with raymarine lighthouse 3 (axiom)

im not located in USA - and raymarines discriminatory forum policy prevents me from posting questions, my local country has no such forum... so im stuck with no easy way to seek answers
(really bad customer support/ policy raymarine!!)

LH3 manual (advanced) lists possible data items for dashboard display.
however no details provided.
some items are obvious, others less so.
not obvious which are calculated items and which are simply display N2k Respective PGN data.

in particular, no details on
Engine category
“average fuel rate “ vs “engine fuel rate”?
presumably the latter is “instantaneous... but unclear if the average
is calculated by LH3 (& if so over period?) or is expecting an average rate supplied by engine over N2k?
“instantaneous fuel economy “ ... presumably this is fuel rate (instant)
diviided into speed? (SOG?) or perhaps it uses LH3 average SOG (once again no details on period used for averaging SOG)

Fuel category (tanks)
“fuel economy” ?
what is this at a tank level?
“fuel rate total” ?
do above require tank fuel flow sensors?

Fuel category (all tanks)
“engine economy total”
is this summed fuel rate for all engines divided into SOG?
instantaneous or average?
does it require fuel tank flow sensors? or does it use engine fuel rate?
“fuel flow total” .. presumably needs tank flow sensors?

I have 2 x engines, each report instantaneous L/hr (engine displays)
two fuel tanks but single fuel tank level sensor (only) .. no tank fuel flow sensors
as yet i dont have engine gateways (J1939 to N2k) installed,
and trying to understand what data items will be displayed on axiom (LH3) MFD
if i do purchase/install gateways

any help or experience with LH3 and data items appreciated..
or perhaps someone can post my above question (minus my stab at raymarine support) into raymarine forum

You should ask your question Raymarine Forum

Usually a fast reply from a Ray Tech

Re: help with raymarine lighthouse 3 (axiom)

im aware of the forum, however as i indicated
because im located outside usa (australia) the raymarine policy will not allow me to be registered.. and hence i cant post (only view)
ive tried to get around it with using my usa address ... but it appears to detect IP address during registration request.
... a very discriminatory policy...

You can get on the forums by using a proxy website during there registration then you will be good to go.
