    The CVT's have this lower value and should partly explain why the CVT gets better fuel mileage than the M/Ts.

    Also, if the Power is changed from Normal to High Power, will this achieve the HP available only on the 2017 models which have the same engine as the earlier variants?
    Is it CVT option or for manual?

    I think most likely this is the multiplier to calculate speed? if this is the case the physical speed will not change, just the odometer/speedo readings.

    I'm real confused.

    putting the setting back too 4.055 May be in your best interest.

    3.550 likely retards the timing too resist detonation and adjusts fuel tables to accommodate different mechanical attributes it thinks the transmission has. UK cars came with an actual differently geared 5 speed.

    but I'm really curious about that high and normal power thing!

    Satria_wr posted a great list of the settings you can change with ETACs decoder software. I am just going to post a bunch of images to show those settings. I took a screen shot, hit page down, took another, rinse and repeat. So, these are all of the settings in the ETACs menu that you can change. I didn't poke around too much when I was in there, but I probably will be going back and enabling some of the stuff like instant fuel economy readout and ambient temperature display.

    So far, my successful tweaks had been enabling the ECO light & ambient temp display at the MID.

    Might be trying what works - next:
    • Change default Fuel Consumption setting from L/100Km to Km/L
    • Enable Instant FC
    • Change Tire Circumference from 1748 to 1784
    • Enable GCC Speed Alarm Indicator
    • Enable Auto Light Control
    • Enable Rain & Light Sensor
    • Enable Rear Fog Lamp

    Hey .. Etacs decoder now read-only? I can no longer make any changes. The last version I made a successful write was w/ the 5.0.x.x.

    If Satria_wr is still around .. can you test the latest version if you'll have the same result as I've had .. NO WRITE to the ETACS? Maybe write function is available only on the PAID version.

    I realize my pictures got resized down to the point where they're not really usable. Here are some cropped ones so you can actually READ what the settings are.

    These are all default settings for a 2014 DE Mirage 5 speed in the United States.

    Awesome to see that list of settings!!! What the heck is Rent-a-car mode?!?

    From an automotive technician's point of view (and a warranty-voiding paranoia concern), I wonder if there's a value in there somewhere which indicates the last date that anything was written to the computer?!? I doubt this would ever be an issue with the Mirage, but blow up an engine with a turbo/supercharger under warranty, and that's probably the first thing the dealer will go looking at.

    Yeah, there are tons of settings that I have no idea what they do. Going through the menu and seeing what the available options are would shed some light on it for sure.

    I'm wondering if you can't change the 'Turn Signal Bulb' to LED, so you can run LED bulbs in them without issues and using resistors (booo)?

    I also like the idea of being able to change the wheel diameter, so you can have a correct speedometer no matter what tire size you go with. That is pretty awesome!
