Tune 'n' 'charge 'n' tune

Familiarity breeds contempt. Or something.

Sounds like you're continuing to make progress. It's just like developing software (or engineering ANYTHING). The Apha version is all sorts of buggy. Then you apply what you learned to make a better Beta version. And eventually, the 3rd or 10th revision starts getting pretty refined.

So I decided to keep autotuning. It keeps getting better with no enhancement. Still not good enough...but better.
Since Tgiving I've got over 3 hours just driving around running autotune.

If you set the resistance to change to "hard" or "very hard", it will take longer to get each cell to go green, but you'll get a more accurate tune. (maybe you're already doing that)

It's been on "normal." The picture above took about an hour. But, I had planned to make the change you suggested, and will probably lock out the dark greens along the bottom. Those cells have thousands of hits.
