Voltage and Temperature) and reports on ranges of values across a fleet of vehicles and a period of time. 4.4 Telemetry: Fuel Consumption Trend The Fuel Consumption Trend report calculates and reports fuel efficiency (mpg) per time period over vehicles and date range.7 4. The report is best used for many vehicles to provide a status overview for the fleet. Additional input fields: Low voltage level*: The voltage level at which to be notified (volts) High coolant temp*: The coolant level at which to be notified (Fahrenheit) This report provides the minimum and maximum voltage levels to help diagnose battery and electrical issues. the maximum coolant temperature to diagnosis engine problems such as over-heating. Trends may be the result of factors such as shift changes or peak hour driving versus off-peak driving. Use it to provide more details and greater information from the Fuel Consumption report. It also provides the fuel consumption per day. if there are any troubles codes (i. the occurrences of MILs (malfunction indicator lamps) and the Odometer distance driven with an MIL. oMG-ED-091001 59 .onBoard Mobility Manager oMM User Guide 2.
