      Harry was basing his numbers on a simple equation of 1 gram per second per liter of displacement at 500 rpm, but this is not an exact equation. Unfortunately, Harry did not record what the new MAF sensor was reading, only that the fuel trims were normal. Restricting the fuel line is another idea for completing the Idle Relearn, but we would caution pinching fuel lines, especially hard plastic lines.
