Discussion and questions related to the course **EFI Tuning Fundamentals**

To help clarify Lambda no matter what fuel system will equal 1 for stoich power?

Gasoline: 14.7 = 1 Lambda

Methanol: 6.4 = 1 Lambda

Same for the rest = 1 Lambda?

If that is correct what is the Lambda for Gasoline 11.5?

Thank,

The lambda value for Petrol at 1.1.5 AFR is less than 0.8 Lambda (probably 0.78 or something close).

11.5/14.7=0.78

Thank you Ludo86!

To calculate AFR from lambda, multiply the lambda value by the stoichiometric AFR for the fuel. ie 0.80 lambda on petrol is 0.80 x 14.7 = 11.76

To calculate lambda from AFR, divide the measured AFR by the stoichiometric AFR for the fuel. ir 12.5:1 on petrol is 12.5 / 14.7 = 0.85

So when setting up your tuning software to show Lambda, does it automatically detect the fuel type and adjust to suit....or do u enter a target AFR for it to reference from?

i.e running gasoline - 14.7 stoich, then change tune to say suit E85 - 9.8 stoich, the AFR is going to be considerably different. therefore the Lambda reading will need to be recalculated?
