If you have powerpoint, I have put it in that.

I could email it to you.

send me your email in a PM and I can shoot it to you.

it is a lot of data. I don't think I could get it very visible on this forum.

What kind of car do you have? Most of the XGauge codes provided in that PDF are vehicle-specific.

You could have Google display it as a PDF or as HTML for you (links below), or you could use http://www.zamzar.com to convert it for you. However, I recommend using Foxit PDF Reader instead of Adobe's reader. Foxit's reader is much smaller and more dependable.

It's free, though there is a pay version you can get that's got more features.

Google search for the file so that you'll get the options to view it:
http://www.google.com/search?q=intit...e+filetype:pdf

Google view of it in HTML:

Google view of it as PDF:

Thank you, it worked!

But i have a question. If I add some gauges other than the gauges I need, like fuel trim or oxygen sensors operation, will it make the scangauge more accurate, or it will basically calculate the fuel economy with as much as possible informations?

the accuracy of the scangauge is determined by the user. you can adjust it with an offset (it is a percent) there is a calibration procedure that you have to go through.

the X-gauge simply adds mathematical formulas to translate the raw data that the scangauge is already getting. the scangauge isn't getting any extra information at that point. you are simply able to understand what the scangauge is getting better.

Actually, most XGauges do query and pull additional data, but that data is not used by the SG's fuel economy (FE) calculations. Add XGauges that you want to see because you want to see them; they're not going to change the unit's accuracy.

that is good to know. I always thought that all the data was sent to it using the obd2 port and it basically didn't know how to sort it all out in a way that is useful.

thanks
