How about some screen shots of the app?
So after running the diagnostic today - cylinder 4 has had 1 misfire over the last 10 cycles, does this mean it's time to change the plug? I've been running autolite 103's since 50k miles, I assume even 1 misfire is an indicator of more misfires to come. Now that I'm currently at 81k miles, 31k miles on the plugs (originally gapped at 0.50), time for a change anyway?I like data too. I focus on MPG exclusively but if you are just looking for numbers, just let it scroll through the parameters and glance at it periodically and take mental notes. My scangauge always shows instant MPG and MPH (dash gauge reads about 2mph low); the other 2 spots I use to show whatever I might be interested in on any given day. Today was volts and GPH as I wanted to see what difference there is between idle with lights on and off, just because I was wondering what cost the lights induce.
Data is fun but can create over-sensitivity of the user. For instance, worrying about volt gauge fluctuations or engine temps that are completely normal just not really every noticed...
Torque is already saving me money and apparently it helped save your life!Here's how I set up my torque app. When my battery light came on, I was able to use torque to identify that my alternator was not working. Because of this I was able to use the remaining juice in my battery to get to a garage and leave it there. When alternators die, the car can only go at most 100 km on battery juice then it cuts out completely and that dangerous or fatal in the highway!
What information are you having trouble with? I use a scangaugeII in my car and it is a bit difficult to figure out what is useable data and what are numbers to just ignore. Are you looking to monitor performance, fuel economy or just monitor data?
Hi 1turbofocusYou guys would be far better off spending that money on a SCT xcal4 , getting datalogging capabilities and a full custom tune , having the info something isnt right is great if its a part thatc bad and changeable but not so good if it isnt a part you can change but needs adjusting
