335d Torque/BT data collection

Seems like there was some interest is this type of thing from the other thread. So if there's interest, and you like data, please contribute.

I've just started playing with some additional fields in the Torque app (not all of the fields are able to get data) that I hadn't looked at previously. There's several others I'd like to view and record as well in following posts (like comparing how much fuel is used at idle when in D or N, or with the AC on or off, etc.)

But here's some of the data from this mornings commute. It was freezing fog conditions so no wind and the drive was slower than normal (~49-54 mph most of the way) and I hit 3 of the 5 stop lights. Better than normal average mpg for the trip (due to lower speeds and no wind). Found the Air/Fuel ratio and Volumetric Efficiency calculation interesting.

Need to read more about the HP/TQ readings as they only show up sporadically (not sure if it is triggered on G force, so at steady state it doesn't record data). Anyway, I zoomed in on a section where I accelerated from a stop light (at restrained levels due to the ice). These two numbers look like fun things to experiment with . . .
