LOD gauge on Scangauge II
According to the scangauge manual, the LOD gauge measures either the percent of maximum torque being used or the percent of maximum torque used at the current RPM. Since I can get very high LOD numbers even at low RPMs, I assume it is measuring the percent of torque being used that is available at the current RPM.
Based on this logic, putting the pedal to the floor should result in 100 LOD. However, when I floor my Versa, my LOD gauge shows only about 89, regardless of the RPM or speed I floor it at.
Also, my LOD does not go below 10-11 ever. Even I am coasting in gear and the fuel injectors shut off, the LOD usually reads 11.
Do you guys get numbers like this too, or is it only me? Is there anything I can do to correct for this?
