Fuel Economy

Use Dashboss ™ to hone in on driving skills that enhance your fuel mileage!

For several GASOLINE vehicles, the  instant fuel economy parameter can be set to one of the gauges to keep an eye on your driving style.  You can also set Alerts to warn you when you are driving outside of your defined economy parameters.

On vehicles equipped with cylinder deactivation technology (GM’s Active Fuel Management (AFM) and Chrysler/Dodge’s Multiple Displacement System (MDS) for example), there are several neat parameters to watch that can help you maximize the time spent in V4 mode and save gas.  There are indicators of V4/V8 mode, time spent in each mode, distance activated and the like.  These can be powerful reminders to help be as gas frugal as possible.

You can also watch many other parameters that have a direct effect on economy, such as Throttle Position (TPS), Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP), Engine Load %, Mass Air Flow (MAF), RPM, and more.
