    Is this doing it right? I have a Honda-engine generator (rated 6800/8500W) that I use to power my house during outages and I fired it up to blow out the cobwebs and get fresh fuel through the carb.

    I found this Ferrari flood title story to be amusing. We deal with VW/Audi versions of passenger occupant detection stuff all the time:

    2021 VW ID 4 77kWh RWD Pro performance Max

    2021 Taos 1.5 DNKA

    I noticed VCDS pausing on a specific measuring value in 75 that was N/A (starting with REM_ ) but it eventually completed. I sent Eric debugs today from a 2020 Tiguan that exhibited the same behavior, so he’s on the case. Why Jef is unable to talk to 75 at all, I don’t know but he should send...
