Post "MPG" - Metric L/100k issues
on: January 8, 2022 (GMT)

Hi
I have been trying to trim some error out of my fuel usage figures in Torque Pro.
I have lowered the “MPG” trim (MPG to me is imperial, but this seems to apply to metric L/100K as well) from 1.00 to 0.45 to get the L/100K instant and average even close to what it should be.
However it seems to drastically increase the fuel rate L/Hr beyond realistic figures.
I have a Diesel Nissan Navara D40 2012 Thai built, and I know from fuel fill-up and KM traveled figures that I get around 10.0 L/100K. And thats what many seem to get.
With MPG trim on 1.00 I get average L/100K around half or 5 L/100K on average. But the fuel rates seem realistic at 1-2 L/Hr idle and 9-10 L/Hr on the road at 100KMH.
When I lower the MPG trim to 0.45, my L/100K become more normal at around 9.5 to 10 L/100k but the fuel rate more than doubles to 5-6 L/Hr idle and 15 to 18 L/Hr on the road at 100 KM/Hr.
Now this is where things don’t make sense.
I cannot get the L/Hr and L/100K sensibly equating. With the trim at 0.45, if the car is traveling at 100KM/Hr using fuel at the average rate of 15-18 L/Hr then logic says the L/100K should be around 15-18. But its around 9.5 to 10.
Does anyone else see these issues?
I am using fuel flow PID only as my Navara does not seem to support the extra sensors that fuel calcs can use.
I also take those L/100K readings after resetting and driving at constant speed on the highway for 10 to 15 mins.
Any insight appreciated.
Cheers

Hi!

Do you have the ‘Enhanced MPG Calculation’ and ‘Faster Communications’ options enabled in the app settings?
