I believe sbus is compatible. I run sbus with an MSH Brain flight controller and they talk flawlessly. I've also used Arduino sbus library to read frsky sbus data.

OK thanks Raleighi'... looking at the copyrights for the library now... just making sure what I can, and can not do in regards to using it in this project.

Default FrSky GAS-Suite

I was browsing frsky's website looking at the various telemetry sensors / ula scripts, and happened across this particular gas sensor suite for remote monitoring in real time internal combustion engines... monitors engine rpm, temp, fuel flow velocity / fuel consumption / gas quantity... as well as control ign manually, on/off kill switch... The fuel flow sensor has a 2% accuracy, temp sensors 1%... Surprised Bert hasn't seen this, not sure if it's accurate enough, but thought it was pretty neat none the less.

That fuel flow sensor doesn't have accurate readings at the flow rates our engines use. It's more suitable to fuel flow rates of turbine engines.

It the pdf manual, claims its intended for use in monitoring gasoline internal combustion engines, no mention of turbines, but the 2% accuracy at those flow rates, I would tend to agree... they do say those values are customizable via the ula scripts, and updated firmware... it's suppost to show remaining fuel quanity based on the tank volume size listed in the ula script... its a neat concept, but needs better accuracy, and improved sensitivity... it's been out since 2018.
