Same slight fuel usage reported on my 2009 Fit.

I contacted Scangauge about it, suggesting a simple "if rpm = 0, gph = 0, else ....." code change. They replied that it's not a big error so no plan to fix it. This was about a year ago. I hope you have more leverage with them.

This reveals a lack of understanding of the customer.

(Or at least one of their customer profiles.)

'99 civic vs eoFc

After a trip using eoFc, a fillup consisted of significantly more gas than expected, the only time this has happened. The pump was tested and reported to be accurate.

I suspected that the car was using gas based on RPMs when the ignition was off, and have not used eoFc since that time. However, my use of eoNc has been accurate and has been verified at the pump.

*IF* the updated software (revision) is successful, will LINEAR LOGIC let the rest of us send in our units for upgrade (at a reasonable cost)?

fixed

I'm not sure what the charge is for flashing the latest version. I'll ask.

But it appears to be fixed!

Before (my ScanGauge):



Above, that's my ScanGauge. The car is moving and the engine's off (should have switched to MPH from VLT).

After (test ScanGauge from Linear Logic):
