Hi there, I have a jb4 for the n55. it has 4 plugs and it has a e85 gauge on the app it reads at about 55-60 when I am running a e30 mixture. sooo is it accurate but just needs to be converted?

The virtual sensor is not accurate on N55 motors, just something we're testing out. You can use the WMI virtual sensor offset to better dial in if you want.

For the N54 the virtual sensor is fairly accurate.

And of course all JB4 models support a Fuel-IT ethanol sensor kit if you need highly accurate readings.
