I really would recommend that it at least be hosted here at ecomodder if not at google.

ecomodder wiki (also wikipedia software):
MPGuino - EcoModder

google wiki (my favorite):
opengauge - Google Code

I'm very glad to see someone take an interest in the documentation, but I don't like the branching of the server base so much (or the ads and support differences), and there is a long long long way to go on the documentation.

MPGuino Documentation

DCB,

That is great news. Since Ecomodder is Mediawiki, then whenever you are ready you can just take my material and move it there if you like. So you have choices, Either Wikipedia or ecomodder wiki. I do not plan on learning another wiki as media wiki is the clear leader IMHO.

Just let me know when you are ready to move it somewhere, so I do not duplicate efforts, in the mean time, since I seem to be the only one willing to document, I will continue my website for my viewership as well as here. After you decide to move it, I will make a reference page to the changed site.

I also look forward to trying this out on my Jeep Wangler when I get the time.

Question about schematic

I have a question about the schematic wiring diagram, based on the Arduino at MPGuino - Combustory

The Vss connection leads to a 100k resistor then a caption "digital pin 14". However it actually leads to Analog In 0 on the Arduino.

Am I missing something?

Also the caption for the iduino schematic is "Arduino Assembly Schematic"

The caption, at least here, was fixed quite awhile ago.

And maybe the analog pins continue as digital pin numbers in other documentation, since the last digital pin is 13 otherwise. But whatever you call the pin, put the wire there and it does work.

DCB has done a remarkable job with this.

Analog pins can be used as digital also

I added the following line to the Wiki.


"The Analog pins in this schematic show 0-5 are used as digital I/O, therefore, Analog pin 0 is Digital pin 14 then count up from there. "

Perfect example of Forum's being difficult

Wagonman,

If you could point me to that correction, It would help me fix the docs to match this forum more closely.

Nevermind, I see the issue. Caption for the iDuino was wrong, it is fixed now.

Thanks,

TruckTrash

This is the box he used:

RadioShack.com - Cables, Parts & Connectors: Component parts: Project boxes: Project Enclosure (4x2x1")

I'm using the same one. It's a lot smaller than it looks. It's a tight fit, but I think I'll be able to get my iDuino, iDuino-MPGuino shield, and LCD to fit in it nicely. the case may not close completely, but that will allow some airflow. I will also have the 7805 and blue sockets sticking out the back.

I have a suggestion if it hasnt been said already. Anybody think itd be a good idea to start some sort of database of vehicles (make, model, year, engine, transmission, final drive ratio) that this has been successful on? With the parameters listed that worked, such as pulses per mile, microseconds per gallon, and anything that is not stock such as different injector delay? And maybe a place to PM the vehicle owner if someone wants some tips for a similar vehicle?

^^ I like that idea. I'm certainly willing to be an informational go-to for the Subaru Impreza. I've got access to a lot of information for the entire model line.

(damn, every time I use the "^^" to indicate "the above post", I end up on a new page :lol: )
