Some uncivilised parts of the world still use leaded exclusively. Like
here where I am. Is it impossible to measure the mixture when using
leaded, or do you just need different sensors?

Where would one find a thermocouple to fit in the exhaust? And of how
much use are they?


OK almost finished. Final item: what I currently plan to build to use
as an EFI controller.

My requirements are that I can use the system at home to play with, as
well as in the car. This means that I have some widely separate requirements,
such as an IDE interface and possibly VGA, at least Hercules display, and
a PC keyboard port. And DRAM. On the other hand I want battery backed up
RAM (Not Dallas, frightfully expensive over here) and EEPROM. Flash
support would be nice. Lots of timers, for both systems. 2 serial ports,
RS232 or RS422 selectable. Lots of static ram for a "flight recorder".

So I've been planning something similar to what John has been doing, but
with more ram, timers etc. This board would have two ports, one for
additional ram & stuff when the thing is working as a computer, and an
IO port for attaching all the A/D converters etc.

The motherboard would be the expensive one, so I would hope to get it
right the first time. I plan to integrate my existing design with
the one by cyliax and John's one.

PS .za, for those who are wondering, is South Africa. Nice place. Come
visit sometime.
