Is there a gasoline fume detector sensor available that connects to a NMEA 2000 network? If so I cannot find one.

I still have not found one either except for perhaps a maretron sensor but I think it detects propane. Oh well. I guess I will get the xintex and find a place for another 2 1/16 inch hole. I need a bigger helm.

I ended up adding the MB-1-R gas detector that operates the blowers in event of alarm in a new custom trim template. I currently have it wired without a switch and it is active all the time unless the main battery is switched to 'off'. I may add an inline switch but it draws less than 200ma so it could operate for about 25 days before draining the battery.
