I used it to determine the optimum rpm and load for the pulse. I don't have a chart for my engine, but looking at several others, it seems that 1500-2000 rpm and about 3/4 throttle is the peak. That's what I use for the pulse part of my P&G. This way, when you do use the engine, it's at its best (lowest?) bsfc. And when you're not doing that, it's off.

It works, too. Grille block, tire pressure, scangauge, and P&G give me the numbers I have.
