Terry, Where do I get your email address from to email you about 5.15 and the FF sensor logic testing? I just ordered FF wires, too.. Did I order just as they are becoming obsolete?

Side note, I'll post in support but I just had to disconnect the WG control and plug the stock clip to the boost solenoid to get boost again. Hopefully it's just a setting in the JB4 and it will be involved again in boost control soon.

Any new JB4 sold within the last couple of years should have the FF connector installed already. If its an older system, then you need to add it.

It must be older. I had to cut the diode for ISO a while back and they're not certainly there.

And... I did just find my issue, YAY! I must have set 4/4 and that doesn't work well with the WG wires inline. I was accustomed to 4/4 making the CANflap quiet out of habit yesterday. An option in the jb4 mobile app to toggle/set the CANflap would be awesome, btw! So I will remember 4/5 now toggles, especially after this, very very well. And! 4/3 is really important if you like boost.

Can't wait for the FF wires and then hopefully play with some beta and 5.15 firmware.

Thanks again! You're awesome Terry!

Tried out the new FW today, seems smoother but not sure if that's placebo. My "E85 Content" gauge didn't have any information while driving. The "E85" gauge showed varying numbers, mostly between 70-100...never under 50. I believe I should be around E30.

Didn't do any WOT logging, but here's a log to show the e85 fw update. I think the E85 gauge is learning down?

Hi, I don't get that Ethanol Setup menu. It's blank. And my reading in datalog shows 0% E85.

I installed E85 harness, upgraded to latest ISO. I am on Windows 10.

Exclamation 06-08-2017, 07:38 AM

Terry, thanks for answering, but since there is no online documentation for JB4 interface, I got to ask:
Which one (or few?) should I select:
- 2/3 FlexFuel Input
- 15/16 FlexFuel input
- DTML FlexFuel
- DTML WMI Input

My FlexFuel harness is connected to pin #21. Car 135i N55 (US).


Also, is there no Virtual Sensor capabilities for N55,.. right? (since E85 signal shows zero).

The virtual sensor does work. If you're using the app, you need to get the beta version. You also need the test jb4 firmware from Terry.

My virtual sensor isn't reporting the correct mixture. I haven't adjusted the setting for the virtual sensor in the user adjustments.

There is a figure in the field, I think it's over 100.

Ok, I wasn't aware of beta firmware, etc. Thanks.

But if I have FlexFuel harness from BMS connected to pin 21, I think I can skip beta firmware and use real sensor from the harness?.

For that, which of the below options should I select ?
- 2/3 FlexFuel Input
- 15/16 FlexFuel input
- DTML FlexFuel
- Scale PI ?



Are there any other cool functionalities in beta firmware ?

Also, Terry, I worked before with 1-click deployment, and there are options there to allow for online updates. It was easy to implement (I have working example). It would be very useful if JB4 app was checking for updates every time we start it.

You are confusing the FF/Fuel Pressure connector (on #21) with a physical flex fuel sensor that you do not have.

Thanks for clarifying.
I guess the names are confusing because even Fuel Pressure Connector
Installation guide is titled FlexFuel Connector.
I wish JB4 interface app had more documentation.

I am going to follow this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?p=21800483 regarding E85 Virtual Sensor. Cool

Yes I'm working on updating that installation documentation to make it more clear. They are different things.

Testing out the 5.15, my "E85 Bit" value is set to 0 and the "Offset" is 132. The E85 monitoring doesn't seem to be working properly. (not reporting the correct mixture)

Should these 2 fields be set to anything specific?

0 and 132 are what mine defaulted to as well. The virtual sensor reading is reasonably close to what my physical sensor says considering this all is still a work in progress.

A few bugs on the IOS JB4 Ethanol section to work out also. Can't change offset, and can't modify E85 "bits". If you go to E85 bits to change parameters, the text screen locks in place, and the only way to get out of that menu is to force close the app and restart.

I've been running the virtual sensor and physical sensor for about 3 weeks now.

So far offset of 142 reads dead on with my physical sensor. Our 93oct contains up to 10% ethanol; I add four gallons of E85 to my fill up in an E90.

First of all I think the reading should represent ethanol content, not E85.
It's confusing enough that E85 has 70% ethanol at the pump, not 85%.
Is this what virtual sensor assuming? Confusing as hell.

For me the virtual sensor shows too much in any case. I poured 33% of E85, and sensor shows 55%, so I upped offset to 150. Will see, but I don't know what I am really measuring, because of what mentioned above.

The virtual sensor is a feature under development, and very raw in the case of the N55 motor. If you want to help test it out and need help just email in. It's not something we'll be discussing in this thread much.

Not finding any relevant info, but I have the JB4 Mobile iOS beta, trying to test the Virtual Ethanol sensor. Have beta firmware as well..

What do I need to set under ethanol settings? I see...

JB4 2/3 FlexFuel Input
JB4 15/16 Flex Fuel Input
DTML FlexFuel Input
DTML WMI Input
Scale PI on FlexFuel
Startup E85 Indicator
Enable WMI Pump PWM
Virtual Sensor Offset

It's all off and I can't find what to set, doing a search...
