RE: efie green light
Resetting the computer won't affect the EFIE, but it will affect how the computer directs fuel flow. Fuel flow changes will affect how the EFIE blinks.

I really only use the blinking LED to show me that I have hooked the EFIE up correctly. I don't try to diagnose the setting of the EFIE by using the LED. The only data I use for setting the EFIE is fuel mileage. If you get better mileage, then you're change in setting is moving in the correct direction. If it gets worse, you're going the wrong way, or have already found the best setting.

RE: efie green light
before i set the efie i get 35mpg and after i set the efie to 190mv i get 40mpg should i go up or down. and if i disconnect the battery and the computer change the fuel flow that mean that i need to adjust the efie?

RE: efie green light
First of all, if you started out with 35 MPG, then you should be looking for more like 50 MPG. Probably, you already are.

I can't tell which direction is is. If it got better by running it at 190 mv, then try going lower yet. But maybe you went too far. My best guess is that you need to go lower. But note, if you have any issues with loss of horsepower, you have definitely gone too far.

RE: efie green light
Yes, perhaps. You definitely want to try that.

Now, we haven't talked about your HHO production. How many amps are you drawing. Most people try to make way too much HHO. More is definitely not better. We use about 1-1/4 LPM on 15 liter trucks. Cars need much less HHO than is commonly considered. Making more HHO than is needed will reduce your gas mileage. So, also adjust your HHO production to maximize your mileage too.

RE: efie green light
I don't know. But I don't fully understand the question. What do you mean when you disconnect the battery? Disconnect what?

i disconnect the battery to reset the ECU and you tel me that it change the fuel flow. i need to know if that affect the set point for me, before the disconnections it was 190mv after 300mv.

RE: efie green light
Ok, I understand now. When you disconnect the battery, you've reset the computer. Now it will have to learn it's fuel tables over again. That's why the same setting on the EFIE will react differently. Just re-set your EFIE after the computer reset, and you should be fine.
