Hi,

I installed the app today and was surprized my 5,- € OBD II adapter was recognized without any problems.

When will Diesel engines be supported? Running an app that should report CO2 und fuel consuption, but does not provide those informations for nearly 50 percent of the vehicles (in Germany) is quite useless. Is there a timeline?

Another problem is, that the throttle position is not shown in my data. Other ODB apps (Torque f.e.) are able to read this value from my ODB adapter (as well as CO2 and fuel consumption).

Hi Klaus,

thanks for your positive feedback. May I ask which Android Device you are using? We are trying to keep track of the compatibility between devices and OBD adapters (see [1]). I assume, your adapter is a no-name device similar to [2]?

Regarding the consumption calculation for Diesel cars. Compared to common gasoline-powered engines, this a relatively complex process as Diesel engines follow completely different patterns when it comes to fuel injection. We are currently in the phase of research and analysis for a set of algorithms. This has the highest priority as we are aware of the relatively high amount of Diesel cars in Germany.

Regarding Torque I am not sure if it can provide reliable values on Diesel engines. Are you using the Pro-Version? The free version indicates that fuel consumption calculation is "available in the pro version". Though it still produces values, independent of the engine type.

Best Regards,
Matthes

Hi Matthes,

I am using a Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 and my OBD device is labeled "Mini ELM327 OBDII OBD-II OBD2 Interface Bluetooth V1.5" (got it from eBay: http://goo.gl/KH9puh).

Yes, I am using the pro version of Torque, albeit till now I did not really care about fuel consumption and CO2 values, don't know if they are correct. I just configured Torque to record both CO2 and fuel consumption to a logfile, I'll try to verify those values.

thanks for your info, I added these to the compatibility matrix.

Cool, if you have any results, we are would appreciate sharing these!
