Perform the fuel calibration procedure.  It is fully described in the manual
Double check that you have set the engine size correctly.

The refresh speed is adjustable on the EM.  However, depending on the protocol you may see no benefit. 

1.  9141 / KWP2000,   Minimal to no benefit
2.  J1850(GM) - some
3.  Ford  - some
4.  CAN - will benefit

UG supports all the gauges listed on the UG site.  However, ultimately the available gauges is vehicle dependent.  If the vehicle supports the standardized ECM voltage parameter, then UG will display it.  In general the new the vehicle the more likely it is to support ECM voltage

*** UPDATE:  With the introduction of the UltraGauge EM version 1.2 on 6/27/12, voltage is now a standard gauge that is always present even when the vehicle does not support it.

Only if you filled up the tank twice after you started the procedure.  The word "after" is key.
Be sure you have the latest EM manual.  The calibration process was recently expanded upon

To reset everything and start as if new:

Menu --> UltraGauge Setup... --> Restore ALL Defaults

Battery voltage is like most other gauges, it is vehicle dependent.  Some vehicles support it via the OBDII as a standard gauge, and some do not.  If it does not appear on the gauge selection list, then your vehicle does not support it.    The other device is measuring the voltage and is not getting the voltage from OBDII requests.

UPDATE:  With the introduction of the UltraGauge EM version 1.2 on 6/27/12, Battery Voltage is now a standard gauge which is available even if the vehicle does not support it

The factor is not something your is simply information.
If you follow the steps in the manual strictly, you should have no issue.  Just remember to exit the menu system once the calibration begins.

There is no setting to switch between fuels.  You would need to calibrate UG when you switch between fuel types.   Be sure your vehicle is OBDII certified.

General Discussion / Re: Protocol

CAN is a shared bus topology.  Many devices can and do hang off it at once.
If your vehicle uses the 9141 protocol, it was not made for the US market and therefore was not required to support the CAN interface at the OBDII connector.  The likely only difference between the US and Canadian versions is the Engine Control Module.  The US used the New CAN version and Canada was the dumping ground for the older 9141 modules.

Forcing UG to use CAN will cause UG to attempt to connect only using CAN.  I suspect that if the protocol is forced, it will scan for two minutes and then shutdown with no success.

« on: March 22, 2012, 11:30:17 AM »
prior to 2008, many manufacturers supported two interfaces on the OBDII connector.  The old protocol and the new CAN protocol.  In general the CAN interface/protocol would not respond to general OBDII devices and was primarily there just for the the manufacturers use.   If your vehicle is a 2008 it was required by federal mandate to support CAN.....unless you have a vehicle that was not sold in the US.  If your vehicle was not sold in the USA, then you would need to check the requirements of country it was sold into.  UG tries the 9141 protocol last.  So if your vehicle supports CAN, it would have found it first.

For the MPG to change with the ignition off, fuel usage or distance must be changing.
Put the MPH and Gallons/hr gauge along side the MPG gauge to see which is responsible.
It sounds as if the vehicle's computer is reporting incorrect values with the ignition off.

One fix would be to switch to "Power Off detect" mode 3.  See the user manual

Sorry, there as yet is no release date.   The best guess would be Summer.

1.3 refers to the user manual.  If you have an UltraGauge EM, with version date Sept 29 2011, then you have a current unit.
MENU --> UltraGauge Setup .. --> Version

If you have a Classic UltraGauge, you can find update info here:
