Setting up the network with nmea 2000 is just plug and play, pretty simple!
For trim, rpm and fuel burn I set up this set of gauges which I keep on routinely.

How does it know how much fuel is remaining? Is it connected to a fuel gauge or sending unit in the fuel tank?

When setting it up, you tell it your fuel capacity. Reset it each time you fill the tank, and it then measures how much fuel the engine's computer is sending through the injectors in real time, and records consumption, so you get your remaining fuel.

Ok, thx. I would really like to have that capability. Time for a new ff/gps. What’s another boat buck  :doh: I’m sure I’ll need your guys help when I’m ready to set it up.

You can even do a partial fill and instead of fill all tanks you can just add say, 12 gallons.  This is seriously my favorite tech thing on the boat.  Knowing the exact amount of fuel remaining and your usage it is possible to accurately estimate how many hours or miles you are able to travel.
