Have you recorded your journeys with a log file yet? Dead cool when you lay them back over the map - you can see all your data as you went along!

(Like max boost coming off roundabouts.. lol)

maddog, might take you up on that offer if it still stands...

as for the combo, I have been using the bluetooth OBDII and Torque Pro for a while now, I have used it on my Cee'd, CMAX and a few mates cars as well! its just so handy to grab a load of info... I rained on my mates parade though, boasting his pug 307 HDI could reach 120 BHP... Never got above 80 even with every effort :P

The BHP is worked out from the power to weight ratio in torque, if its not set up with the correct profile weight in torque (with different ones for each car) it can give a false reading,

Also, i think its taken off the weight AND the 0-60mph, (it cannot measure the actual output - it calculates it) if you get a rubbish 0-60mph (poor technique or problems with traction etc) you might get a low BHP figure

I got 188.8Hp after a few tries on mine, which was close to the expected 180Hp

you need to set the fuel tank to be 54 litres (I think thats the capacity?), the weight needs to be around 1300kg?

yeh ive set it at 53 litres(thats what autotrader says) and kerb weight, its more boost adjustment, columentric efficiency and MPG trim adjustment????????

To be honest, as good as it is, Torque can be a bit cacky.

For example, mine is telling me that it thinks I have 63% fuel remaining and is estimating 2145 miles to go :D The dash MPG average is up at 66.6 MPG but Torque recons the average is only 45.6

Its a great tool, but is so universal that not everything can be right, but it offers a lot of positives!

wow 2000 miles to go, what have you done to get fuel economy like that haha.

when i first loaded up mpg meter, went from like 0-21-35-41-52 and i though ooo cool then skyrocketed to 100-130-150-200-220-255 hahaha

haha, well according to Torque, cruising on a motorway at 60 is showing 120MPG instant, if thats the case, I wonder why my car is of the belief I only have 66.6 :p
