Ok, I have read about the speedometer, plus verified that it is incorrect by about 10 km, so I have checked to see where other inaccuracies lay. The thermometer is constantly off, mostly by 2 degrees either plus or minus. I know this because I have actually measured the temperature and compared it to the Wee reading. Next, here in Kingston, we have several locations with the temperature displayed on billboards. They too are off by 2 degrees either way.
Next, and this is the big one, FUEL ECONOMY! We ALL take for granted that if the wee says we are getting 56 mpg, then by golly, that is what it is. Well, I used the trip meter and reset it to '0' right after filling up. Three days later, my fuel gauge was blinking, so I drove to the next stop and filled it up, the total trip was 321 km. I then looked at that setting as to what fuel mileage I got for that trip (combination city/highway), and the computer said it was 5.2L/100KM. It took me 15.94 L to fill it to the same spot, right under the lip, that I always do. Now I used those figure and calculated the ACTUAL fuel economy that I got, and it was 4.965 L/100KM, and NOT 5.2 L/100KM as what the Wee had indicated.
Me being a technology freak, find these inaccuracies UNACCEPTABLE! I usually only keep bikes for a couple years and then buy new. I thought that the Wee was a keeper, not any more! If the technology on the wee is not reliable, then how reliable is the actual product???
Please check all this out for yourselves, and post the results. I am interested to know if ALL wee's are this inaccurate, or if it is just mine. Using the trip meter, it is easy to calculate the fuel economy.
I can make calculated guesses as to what temperatures are, and what my fuel mileage is as well. We rely on electronics to give us ACCURATE results and NOT guesses.
