    Hi guys,

    The clock in my 18 button OBC has packed up, the fuse is not blown so I picked up another OBC off ebay for a few quid.

    This one is from a 328 of unknown age. I just had a brief browse through a few threads and am wondering if I made a mistake getting this OBC. Will all my fuel figures be out if I use this new one?

    As an aside, how accurate are these things for MPG etc?

    Cheers

    You can adjust the OBC MPG calculation if you wish, its relatively easy. That said, the MPG for the 325 should be around the same for the 328 anyway. As for accuracy I'd say they are within 5% if correctly set.
