Introducing the Engine Stage Assistant

The new release of Hybrid Assistant, for selected car models (Yaris, Auris, Prius3), will advise you about the engine stages. 
At car power-on, a "Play" icon will appear on the engine icon if the engine needs to be warmed up and will start in a few moments. 
You can prevent it by switching to N or selecting EV mode. 

When the right conditions for an idle check are met, a "Pause" icon will show up. 
If you begin to coast, the engine will perform the idle check and will switch to stage S4.

LGP tweaking

A creative user from Hybrid Synergy Forum has found a way to use Hybrid Assistant for checking an LGP modified engine that was behaving erratically.
Using the fuel trim chart he helped the tech support to correct settings of the engine LGP control unit.

Full story is available here:

By his suggestion, the new version of Hybrid Reporter now charts fuel trim corrections for each RPM range of the engine.

Here is the map of the misbehaving engine, with very high trims at high RPMs

After tweaking, the trims are back to lower values

LGP fuel quality evaluation

Joshue Martín de Blas, a long time friend of Hybrid Assistant, has put to good use the Fuel Trim charts of Hybrid Reporter.
In his own words:

These 2 Fuel trims graphics are of the same trip, but with different LPG brand. It's clear that in one case the effective Fuel Trim is bigger (and the fuel consumption higher also), because the ECU needs to make much more corrections tho the injection time.
