Been having issues with running some cars when introducing Modeled fuel equation in traditional the Lambda average is not correct and the car will not start at all. Works when in modeled multi blend. Any one else see this?

Hi Rich, the previous firmware versions have had some issues with Lambda Average not reading correctly, however I'm not aware of any problems in the new release. If you come across the problem again can you save the 'Modelled' base-map and send to us with a PCLog of the problem occurring? Can you then switch to 'Modelled Multi-Fuel', save the base-map, record another PCLog (of it working) and send all four files to us?
