Chris22104 sells it on eBay for the Gen1, but I'm Not sure about the Gen2.
This may be a nice plug and play version for those who do not want to hack/splice into ECU.

Thanks... I guess.

Closed or at least controlled course. Two cars. 3 simultaneous runs each. One car is the control with no modifications. The test vehicle is run once with mods, once without and again with. All ambient conditions recorded for the duration of the drive.

Instead, I suspect we'll see only anecdotal evidence.
Hi S Keith,

With OEMs we've done plenty of both closed course and open-road testing. They typically like to use the process you described, but then also repeat the entire test sequence after reversing the rolls of the test and control cars. The goal is to account for even minute differences between the two vehicles. And the runs were typically increased to 9 segments, instead of 3.

I'm not sure why a finicky fuel bladder would make calculated fuel consumption less accurate, but all of our testing for the Prius was on 2010 and later models.

In any case, I think you're assuming our testing is limited to the Prius. It's not. We've tested on probably 20 different platforms by now, including vehicles from Honda, Nissan, Ford, Chevy, Tesla, Hyundai, Acura, and others.

Marc,

Good to hear it. I wish you the best. Looks like you have a taker in Natalya.
