Yeah I'll definitely block it. Looking head on, you don't see the radiator at all, just the metal support under it, so the angle must have caught it!

So my last tank was like 19MPG So yeah, Torque is a filthy liar. Bummer, because I just invested in this...



It's an Eonon 2154 head unit running Android 5.1.1. I bought a USB-OBD2 adapter and the dash pod to keep it eye level with the gauges. I'll have to do some research on how to make Torque more accurate, as I have all the proper information on the vehicle entered in. Either way, pretty happy with this head unit (especially being only $209).

And Torque Pro is WELL worth the $5 over the free, if anybody is wondering. So many more options and layouts and blah blah blah.

You can calibrate the torque based on real calculations. My torque seems to read really close to hand calculating on my 2002 Forester. But is way off on my 5.7 Hemi I think because it can't handle the cylinder deactivation. My van has a built in guage that is much easier to use and pretty accurate. The OBD2 adaptor is always in the Subaru needless to say. My Subie also throws the catalyst efficiency code on the highway after an hour or so as well and it's nice to just clear it on the fly.

As far as I know, my '96 Outback is still on its original cat, and I'm not aware of any O2 sensor replacements (have to go through the previous owner's receipts sometime). I'm quite frankly impressed that it doesn't throw CELs by this point.

AHA! Found where some of my fuel was going... and it wasn't in my engine! More like, on it! I've had the odor of petrol a few times, but usually only caught it when I was around another car. Smelled it with nobody else around today, so jumped out and, sure enough, it was squirting out one of the hoses where a clamp had not been tight enough! Funny enough, it's not one I ever touched when I rebuilt this pig...

Just happy no fires started as a result! Hopefully this helps my MPG a little.

I just had a 19.5 mpg tank on my manual but that's 100% town and highs are about 10-20 degrees F with lows -10-0 and 8-12" of fresh powder everywhere. The fuel leak may explain the Torque error.

The CEL for the O2 reading is a known Subaru problem even with a new cat. They reprogramed the conputer to make it less sensitive but the best fix is a little spacer to put the sensor a bit out of the stream to make it a little less sensitive.

Man, this car is frustrating.

All city, best I could do is a hair over 20MPG. It's still winter, it's been having a hard time with my slushy driveway, but still, I expected more than this.

And, Torque Pro is a dirty, dirty liar. I know everything is set right, but still constantly tells me I'm doing ~32MPG average.

So... do I continue to mod this thing and hope for better, or say screw it?

(Hurry up spring, I miss my Insight!)

You must not be married. If our driveway gets more than a little slushy, I'm expected to go out and clear it off before too long.

How are your coolant temps? It must be a lot cooler and snowier in Idaho than Cedar Rapids, because we've hardly gotten any snow this winter, and temps go over freezing enough to melt off the snow and ice.

It's the ~475 foot driveway that's a little rough to shovel out. On top of that, we hit record smashing snow out here. We've had probably ~100 buildings collapse from the "Snowacoplypse"! It's pretty nutty. The recent slush in the driveway is really tough to drive through, to boot. Luckily, the roads have been pretty well taken care of, though.
