Ecutek - how to show how much gas is left?

Is it possible to show exactly how much gas is left in the tank? If so, which parameter do I select for it? I heard that it was possible with Torque app, but what about ecutek?

I have the bluetooth module and app.

I don't believe it's a parameter that's available. Try using the gauge on the dash..... that's worked for me thus far

I would but I had a friend who used Torque and told me it showed exactly how much he had left and I thought that it would be a nifty feature to have.

Torque app uses same sender output as the fuel guage in dash . Fuel senders are often inaccurate. While torque app mght give you an exact number reading it may not be accurate

I believe it's just a calculation based on fuel level and shows a % vs full tank capacity, hence it's no better than looking at the fuel gauge.

Yes , just same reference. Best you can do with ecutek is log fuel sender resistance, does not appear to be a way to scale output in the ecutek app unfortunatly
