Not yet, but I will be soon. I am still building and testing my generator.

Great.... good for you...Big Grin
So you managed to dial in the XGauge...
Nice to see that SGII is capable of O2 readout...

Are you running HHO on your Rio? Smile

hey what do ya think of this one.

USA Europe France Germany Greece Italy Spain
OBD II Supported Parameters

The Auterra scan tool supports numerous live data parameters, statuses, readiness monitors, and test results. Live data parameters are parameters, or sensors, that provide real-time measurements (e.g. 32 mph). Statuses and readiness monitors provide a current status (e.g. Complete or Incomplete). And test results are measured by the vehicle's onboard computer and compared against internal pass/fail values.

The Windows-based and DashDyno software support the same parameters, except as noted below. For a complete list of Palm-based supported parameters, refer to the Palm User Manual located on the Downloads page. Note, not every vehicle supports every parameter.

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
Cool! But I can see at least 3mpg staring you right in the face, on the Scangauge...The left readout, is indicating coolant temperature 173degrees F...That should be 192 or better...Running an engine cold is wasting fuel, especially on these newer high tech engines.

Escape Hybrid? I remember driving the Mazda Tribute "mules" at Ford Proving Grounds long before the hybrid came out. The ones we had were equipped with Ford's CVT "mystery shifter" transmissions, and usually took half a lap on the high speed track to get up to speed (most cars and trucks we tested could get up to speed in 200 yards) BTW, the APG high speed track is a 5.2 mile, banked oval, certified for 200mph.
Of course, now Chrysler owns it, and NOTHING they have will ever go that fast.

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
The CVT transmission is cool and takes a bit of getting used to. It's sweet not having to worry about downshifting when going up a hill (and into the wind) at 70 since that always meant open loop and a drop in mileage.

One of the guys at GreenHybrid drove in one of those course and set a higher MPG on his first try than a Ford engineer with 5 years of hybrid experience.

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
Open loop? I'm curious, Colchiro. Does your ride always go into open loop while climbing a hill? My Impala doesn't...The only time I could get it to go open was when I had my EFIE set too high, and it went open loop and set a code. I seldom even have it shift down a gear...it just torques it's way right up over the top.

Yeah, the CVT transmissions do take some getting used to...When they started putting them in the Ford 500's, people were going nutz 'cause they were waiting for them to shift....Lots of warranty tickets were written up for "ghost shifting" at the dealers.
I found it amusing when hybrids first started showing up at the dealers....Ford issued a "Rotunda Essential Tools Kit" for hybrid trained technicians...One of the items in the kit was a fiberglass pole, eight feet long, with a hook on the end. It was "to extract injured technicians from the engine compartment" (electrocution)....

We also saw quite a few collisions involving hybrids, when they first came out...the drivers were busy looking at the displays (gas mileage, regen braking, etc) and crashed into cars in front of them...

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
When I had my Rav4 (4 cyl, which had tires 1 inch oversize), and I was climbing a steep hill going 70+ on interstate and driving into the wind, it would happen quite often. After 3 or 4 of those my SG's mpg would noticeably drop.

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
Ah, the 'ol "one inch bigger tires" syndrome...That probably hurts your mileage more than it helps... The engineers that designed these cars and trucks put a lot of time into sizing the correct tires for them....

A friend of mine has a 1993 S-10 pickup (4.3L) and his son-in-law has a '96 S-10...Both of them are two-wheel drive, but his son-in-law has big tires on his (maybe 4" bigger than stock) My buddy gets 26mpg on the highway with his, and his son-in-law gets 12mpg....See what I mean?

RE: Scangauge II and XGauge...
The tires came with the wheels and I got a good deal on them, $950 with shipping. I would have gone with the stock height, if I had a choice.

Traded the vehicle (but still have the wheels).Wink
