Very Nice!

Easy, simple, and user-friendly. A lot less confusing than other calculators I've tried to use. Good work!

Edit: what else are you planning to add?

This is great. Quick question though. A 1x mix is just regular combustion right? I would suggest maybe doing half mixes like 2.5x or 3.5x mix because I see many people doing this.

Cool bananas, will test it soon :)

Edit: Just noticed the equation uses .953, now I could be wrong here, but glancing over SB15's topic, which I think you based this off, he used .958 for propane...

There's probably some crystal clear explanation I just looked over. :roll:

Oh and I also made a second sheet for MAPP gas, as i'll probably be using that.

Thanks :)

I got slightly different results:
For 100 ci chamber
25 ci volume of pressure meter.

My program:

For 3x, i got 7.73 psi
For 4x, i got 10.3 psi

Your program:
3x i got 8.69 psi
4x i got 11.59 psi

Just slightly off but i could make a big difference.

Your calculator predicted a little high on mine too, 74 psi. I predicted and have been using 63 PSI. 225 CI chamber, 2.2 CI meter. My calc may be wrong, I'll check mine again.

I just uploaded a new version.

Edit: Just noticed the equation uses .953, now I could be wrong here, but glancing over SB15's topic, which I think you based this off, he used .958 for propane...

thanks i just changed that. by the way thanks to SB15 for all of the formulas in the first place

This is great. Quick question though. A 1x mix is just regular combustion right? I would suggest maybe doing half mixes like 2.5x or 3.5x mix because I see many people doing this.

yep 1x is normal combustion. I'll add those too.

Oh and I also made a second sheet for MAPP gas, as i'll probably be using that.

If you don't mind giving it to me Ill add that to it too.

This thread reminds me. I need to update my CO2 calculator thread.

Pat, if you want, I can send you a copy of mine so you can add to this. I posted the original a while back, but I have since made updates to it, including more accurate CO2 data, as well as high pressured air data. If you're interested in throwing in a little pneumatics with this, just let me know.

Oh, and have you considered adding butane to your spreadsheet. A lot of members use it, too.

Just downloaded the newer copy. Only complaint is the yellow background...my eyes...they burn.

Oh and you should definitely make different sheets for different fuels

I updated it now it works for mapp, propane, and butane. I need someone to check over it and make sure it is right for butane and mapp gas.
