ATG Volumetric Efficiency Calculator Application
Enter scan tool data from a test drive to quickly calculate engine breathing efficiency. Use results as a high level indicator that further breathing-fault testing is required, including exhaust backpressure, mechanical timing, and other causes of breathing restriction or reduction. If the vehicle passes this volumetric efficiency test, then you’ve eliminated an entire category of possible causes with a single trip around the block.
