Hello,
Is it possible for a D100 to install 2 FF sensors to measure fuel contents in the L and R tank?
I have a crippled resistive fuel sensors in the L tank and I do not want cut open the fuel tank fo my FK14B.

The fuel flow computer only measures the total fuel state of the aircraft. It can not measure tanks individually, and the fuel computer's calculations are not shown as gauges. The fuel quantity gauges need to be direct measurements from the tanks (using either resistive or capacitance sensors)

If you have the option to select L or R tank, rather than both, you have the problem solved.
Thanks. Yes I can select only L or R tank.
Indeed, your suggestion using one FF sender in this case will work when switching to a tank the remaining fuel of the last time is used a new input of the fuel content, etc.
