FYI, the programs with a datalogging function that I've successfully used with the ELM 323 scan tool:

- wOBD v1.40 - http://www.obd2crazy.com/wOBDv140/index.html
This is the one I used to capture the data posted yesterday. Not particularly user friendly, but did the job. It's a small program, p120/w98 friendly.

- Digimoto Lite - http://www.digimoto.com/updates.htm
Requires the MS .Net programming framework to be installed. Resource intensive. It works on my p120/w98, but it loads & runs slowly. More user friendly than wOBD though.

Yes - it's captured live, and you can display some of it live. But I made the graph in Excel afterwards with stored data.

I haven't used the ELM scanner since I made that first run. I had plans to test out a few things with it this year, but I ended up putting off most of my Metro/Firefly fun in order to finish building the ForkenSwift.

Can the computer get every bit of data the car has at once? example the SG2 only outputs 4 things at once, could you receive all the info from the computer from all the sensors? if so, I'd want to write an Ethernet driver for Linux that would take the info in. I don't have a windows computer so that software isn't an option, and it doesn't make since to have a piece of hardware between the OBD2 port and the computer if your running Linux because you'd only need the software to tell the hardware what to send and receive.

Fuel trim is the mystery variable behind the EGR fuel savings theory. It's where the 02 sensor data goes: constantly into Short Term to maintain stoich. Short Term, when it maxes out in either direction, informs Long Term and then resets to 0 to start all over again.

More details about fuel trim:
cache:V2LZ-m60NAQJ:theautomotivetechshop.com/contentEditor/link2file.php3?file=OBD%20Fuel%20Trim.pdf&linkas=4 short term fuel trim emissions - Google Search
Where was this link supposed to go? It doesn't work for me. I can program in fuel trims as X Gauges on my SG2, but I didn't know how to interpret them re:efficiency so I never used them.

This rumor started in 2007 ????

Actually I'd used the search function looking for past work on the ELM chipset and hit this rather old, Dec. 2007, posting about future ScanGauge enhancements. Then I realized rumors are not product announcements and I'm not 'holding my breath' waiting for a mythical, next generation Scangauge that may or may not show up. In the spirit of Ecomodders, we get tired of waiting for some vague future and go out and make the future happen now.

I've also got a functioning but under performing, AutoEnginuity ($400), and soon realized their concept of support and bug fixes has no relationship to my Prius reports. Then I noticed they are very current on German cars and began to suspect maybe their AutoEnginuity product is just their German car hobby branched out a little.

Please don't take your eyes/concentration off the road for non-vehicle operation related activities.
