Hey Everybody,

I have been using a auto meter for a few years on pump gas the peak recall has never worked reliably. Just switched to e85 this year worked the same as on gas but i was using lambda scale. Sensor went bad before i got the tune were i wanted it. started out lean. I bought the sensor new online i think it was a fake i dont blame the e85 for its failure.

I think the best deal is the Innovate LM2, you can get it with one or two sensors, and with an added cable log RPM. It uses an SD card to record to, and displays AFR and RPM on the unit. With additional components it will log other things, MAP sensor, temperatures, pressures, much like a full data logger. You can set it to read Lambda or AFR, if you decide to look at the log on a computer you can change back and forth between Lambda and AFR. The screen has several different ways you can display the data to suit.
