Default Scanguage II set up on ALH TDI

Hey guys,

Other than the 2 fill-ups the manual says for set up on a scanguage, what else is needed to be done to make sure it is there most accurate?

Please help!

Thanks guys.

Make sure the miles recorded by the SG match your odometer, or actual miles if your odometer is not accurate.

I've noticed they are different by a few. My odometer is dead on as I test it with mile signs. How do I lock those up together? after the 2 fill up calibration it said I got 44.4 and my math on calculator I got 46.6.

Make sure the odometer matches actual.
Then you have to adjust the amoount of gallons you put in.



Ideally, the manual states to fill it up for the first fillup (the manual says to the first click, but if you're vented like mine, until you can see the fuel - no adjustments to be made.
For the 2nd and subsequent fillups, fill it up, then adjust the amount of fuel put in - the SGII indicated more then I had, so lowering the gallons raised the MPG - to pretty close to my hand calculated value. For the 2nd, it also recomends going to the same pump as your initial fillup.


Some members recomend going 50% of your correction - I was departing Raleigh to move to KC, so I went 100% for all corrections. The AVG value for a highway run is very close to my hand calculated MPG.


It doesn't seem to matter if your car has some performance enhancements made either - I have both bigger injector nozzles and RC2 on my Beetle.

Adjust the "Speed" setting in the SG to calibrate the miles measured. A little confusing.
