I don't have enough miles on this tank to tell yet, but it's staying steady so far.

Probably were getting robbed at the other station. Once I have my reader I will see what it shows, the gas brand I use(valero) is only E0 none of their stations offer E10. So I can see if the sensor is always wrong in the app or not.

That is my suspicion, fellas. Unfortunately, that "E0" pump is the only one within about an 80-mile radius of my home town. So, no E0 for me.

Great, please LMK what you find out darkangelism. I suspect that the sensor works since Deesiel678's reports as high as 34.51%.

I haven't had a chance to get on and read the thread :/ I just did -- Thank you all so much for feedback. I am still waiting for my port to ship here after that i'll make extensive logs for anyone that would like them viewing any parameter. It only seems logical that they don't use the climate control sensor for amb temps. My buddy at work hooked his up to get a quick view of afrs so I knew I wasn't going to melt a piston into the block \,,/. On my car, when I leave work my climate control will say it's 105+ outside but will quickly cool to 80-90 after a few minutes of driving. On that note, the IAT ambient temp was reading at 130-140 depending on if i parked in the sun however as soon as the car starts and the intake consumes the air it rapidly cools down to 90-100 (same with IAT's). It's amazing how these cars don't kill themselves with fuel changes and us "casual" drivers driving them lol. I switched fro 93 -> 89 on a trip to (93) chicago and home (89) and lost almost 10 mpgs with cruise control (straight up/down 65) and I must note that my car has literally no balls (on the second tank since coming back to 93). Sorry for the life story.

AFRs still in the 12.5 range. When Injected Engineering dynoed my car, I recall Aron and Aric mentioning that they didn't mess with fueling much. I guess this confirms it; same AFRs with stock calibration.

Does this put to rest the notion that the Focus runs too lean with intake & exhaust without a tune?

Injected changed the amount of timing advance; this is apparent when comparing this log to my previous log.. less timing advance here above 4500rpm at WOT. They also configured it to run cooler. Easily seen when comparing ECTs in the logs.

It certainly looks good. I'm going to try to do a couple of more logs today to see if things have stabilized...

Just FYI, this is not the case. I monitored the ambient sensor yesterday w/Torque and, as I drove down the highway on my way home, the temperature slowly increased and stabilized with the temperature that the gauge cluster was showing. Why does it start at such a low temp (compared to actual ambient), and respond so slowly? Your guess is as good as mine...

That's really interesting. How long did it take to catch up, approximately?
