Question on testing fuel pressure

Post by amblerman » Tue Mar 05, 2019 1:09 pm

Hi folks,


I know I can test the fuel pressure by connecting a gauge to the Schrader valve on the fuel rail.

However, I'm curious to know if an OBDII reader that can capture live data (or VIDA) can capture the fuel pressure.

Is that data that the system knows about and can expose?

If the answer is no, how do people capture fuel pressure data as they drive (to try and catch it as part of occasional hiccups) ?

Thanks

-A
