Question Vehicle efficiency value in Torque Pro app?

Hi there,

I just picked up the Torque Pro app, and I'm wondering what value should I use for "Vehicle Efficiency." The default is 85, but has anyone here found a more accurate number to use for 2g Insight?

Thanks,

What is it based off of? The ima system alone is only 60% efficient.

It's a formula based on several variables. Correction: volumetric efficiency, not "vehicle efficiency" as I initially stated. See this link for details: http://www.installuniversity.com/ins...n_9.012000.htm

Regardless, I found the Torque app can calculate VE on its own, so nevermind. Right now my Insight is in the body shop, but the rental I have (Altima) has awful VE if the Torque app is accurate...its topping out at 70%.

70% of what? An EV? A gas powered engine is like 15-20% efficient with most of the gas being wasted as heat. Most transmissions have at least a 10% loss getting the power to the road. A lot of energy goes into getting, transporting and making a gallon of gas.
