Does the ECU measure engine oil pressure???

Great that we may have Average MPG on the 4 number display!

My last fiillup was within .1 gallons of the SG reading with a 10.725 gallon fillup using the correction factor.

Hello -

Why does the SG report 0.1 GPH with the engine off in neutral coast (i.e. SG sees X MPH + 0 RPM)? It should be reporting 0.0 GPH @ 0 RPM under any and all circumstances.

A compromise for divide by zero errors would would be to have a super small GPH, i.e. 0.001 GPH. For the purpose of the display, this would appear to be 0.0 GPH.

CarloSW2 - you'll have to send that question directly to the SG people. I haven't checked to see if mine does that (I do know it shows 9999 mpg on the instant gauge in those circumstances.)

For those following this thread, the interview is now up at metrompg.com:

http://www.metrompg.com/posts/scangauge-interview.htm

There isn't a lot of new juicy technical info that people who follow the news & rumours about the SG don't already know. Maybe a couple of things:

- how a troublesome Canadian made Ford F-150 led to the development of the SG

- the intention to add user-definable "gauges" to the SG2 for vehicles which offer more info through ODBII than the standard pre-defined set of gauges (e.g. your vehicle may have multiple temp sensors, gear indicators, etc.)

- the fact that the current unit is currenly using less than 1/2 of its processing capability, leaving lots of room for future SG2 improvements via downloadable upgrades.

- Ron's assertion that the SG2 will have a "long shelf life" - meaning the focus is on software development, not changes to the hardware.

Yesterday I changed to Liters and found that my .1ghp idle fuel rate was 0.5LPH and sometimes 0.6LPH so there is a little bit more resolution using Liters than gallons.
