The PC is not shutting down at all when this happens.

I did not check what happens if the PC goes into hibernate and then restarts, this might restart the connection, I'll do some more testing
This afternoon I moved from release .7 to .8. I now only get values for speed, rps, and coolant temp, everything else is blank including the mpg calculated fields (I am displaying most of the values on my skin).
Also 5 decimal places is too much, it makes it too hard to read at a glance, 1 decimal is enough (and none would be fine for speed)
Coolant temp seems to be displaying in degrees C even though Metric=False.
Re the connection issue, If I go out of the main menu and then back in it restarts the connection, so that is fine.
I reinstalled release .7 and it looks good, however I did notice the intake air temp is being reported at close to 300, and that is not right.
The connection issue with the vehicle being turned off and not the PC is a known one, i'm working on a way to automatically reset the connection, just haven't gotten it to work yet.
I'll look over the changes in 0.8 to see whats messing up the other PID values and check with the coolant and intake air temp values.
Just looked over the code, Intake Air Temp is actually in Kelvin at the moment, hence the high numbers. I'll make sure it operates under the metric switch so it can be displayed as C or F.
The more I mess with the code the more I realize the additions have made it kind of clunky in certain areas. I'm going to rewrite most of the MPG stuff as functions more so than they currently are to make things more modular. It should help me track down problems easier as well. Look for a new release sometime tonight, probably in the early AM.
A plugin update is not ready yet, however the debug exe now reports data for all the RR variables. If those who are using the plugin can test to make sure the data being outputted is correct it would be greatly appreciated.
I've just begun using an ELM emulator to do some more testing before I release new builds to cut down on confusion, but I want to try and gain some outside feedback to make sure the calculations are working correctly.

.exe downloaded and installed, I'll run the test tomorrow and let you know what I find.
Thanks, my main concern is MAF values at the moment. I tweaked the original code to work well without a MAF sensor and I think the formulas for a MAF sensor need some adjustment to get realistic values.

It appears my vehicle does not return some of these PID's
There is about 60 seconds between the vales for OBDMPG.exe and my OBD software (Digimoto) as I have to shut one down to start the other.
Please let me know what other test you would like me to run.
Thanks for the value comparisons. It looks like i've got some orders of magnitude wrong on the MAF calculations. I'll try and get that sorted out.
Am I correct in reading the data in that digimoto displayed you're fuel trims and OBDMPG did not? Thats an odd one as those PIDs are displayed pretty much directly with only the conversion factors applied.
That is correct I get the fuel trims in Digimoto but no values in OBDMPG. I'm guessing that the others with no value are not supported by my vehicle.
