I have the ODB2 diagnostic port wired in, my question is what kind of adapter and software do I need? I test drove my 3800na and only seemed to get 20mpg which seems really, really low...

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

I have tunercat obd2, and DHP, both use an AVT-841 cable for tuning. tunercat obd2 needs a standalone datalogger IIRC though. I haven't messed with it too much yet.

Yeah, that is really low. I'm getting 23-25 when I beat on mine, and about 32 on the highway.

I use a ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII adapter and the Torque Pro app. Best $30 I've ever spent. Logging, realtime monitoring, alarms, etc.

Edited to add that you can check and reset codes. Also does code lookup realtime for descriptions.

I use a ScanguageII, but there are other ways. Almost any OBD2 program will do it. OBD2 to bluetooth with a smart phone seems to work fine.

I get around 22-23 around town.
