Re: fairmont bbm conversion

To elaborate on that;

EL ECU sends a different signal to the trip computer than EB ECU. Anything that needs to use injector pulse stats in it's calculation won't work properly. This means L/100, instant L/100 and DTE. Average speed still works.

My L/100 is never below 87 and I'm really getting sick of reseting the DTE every time I get in the car. It reckons I'll only get 80 kms out of 3/4 of a tank.
