Calibrating the UltraGauge...

So I decided that Iím tired of my UG throwing our trip averages that are clearly at least 20% optimistic, so I decided to fully reset it and begin anew, since I couldnít just roll back the 70k miles that Iíve driven with an UG connected...

For some reason it had my car making 220lb/ft of torque... reset that to 150...
reset engine size to 2.2liter, tank size to 12 gal... set injector cutoff?

Gauge says go >7x engine size... I set it at 15, guessing at the figure... NOPE! Registers cutoff coasting at idle... set it to 16? Makes gauge less super sensitive but still too sensitive, registers cutoff as engine speed drops as I take car out of gear, before i kill the ignition.. set to 17? Shows DFCO as I engage it, shows fuel consumption as engine drops to idle, BUT... as I bump start the engine after a coast, it doesnít register that Iím burning fuel until after I put the car back in gear, and if I just restart the engine and go back to neutral, instant MPG stays at 999.9 until I rev the engine, then it goes back to normal... I turned DFCO detection off for now, donít want averages even more optimistic than before...
