is it safe to keep it plugged all the time?
Yes i was astonished too, well this app is not tested well it seems, because the FE figures are not realistic. For this i use the torque app, from the time i plugged it in and till today and after a weekend trip to mahabaleshwar, i am able to churn out a FE of 17.8 kpl

If there is a fuel sensor available for your vehicle then you can get those realtime figures, otherwise just an estimate. For me fuel level sensor is not available for ritz. So, when i do a tank full, i reset the fuel level indicator to 100% and since there is a fuel consumed sensor available, it subtracts the fuel consumed from the total available then calculates DTE, but this is just an estimate, as it does not mean that setting the indicative fuel level to 100% actually mean that 43L of fuel is available it may be more it may be less.
I am still trying to find if the fuel level indicator is available on another parameter than the standard OBD2 parameter which is 012F(reserved parameter code for FL indicator). I willl have to visit a maruti authorized showroom and hook the tech2 device and see if that shows the fuel level indicator, if it does i just have to figure out on which parameter does it displays that and I am done
