  • Fuel to air ratio

    I know that a vehicle trys to run at 14.7:1 but how do I calculate what the instant fuel to air ratio is? Can i use the 14.7*LTFT or something?? Any help would be great! thanks

    You need a wideband O2 sensor to know the accurate AFR.

      Ok lets say I have a wideband O2 sensor.... what pid's and calculations do I have to make?

        Wideband O2 sensor value isn't part of the standardized OBD2 pid values. If your vehicle comes equipped with this, then perhaps you might be able to use manufacturer specific OBD requests to get this value via an interface like the mongoose, but it's not something that is documented anywhere on the internet. The manufacturers tend to keep people from posting this information.

        If you really care, you can purchase a wideband o2 sensor and controller for about $200.

          Yes it is... Not all (not many) vehicles have a wideband O2 but IF they have a wideband then there's a standard way to read the voltage/current and lambda value. See PIDs $24-$2B and $34-$3B. But I agree if it's not present on your vehicle then it's easy to buy/install an aftermarket wideband controller like Zeitronix ZT-2, or Innovate LC-1 and be done.
