I use my 70's vintage analog dwell-RPM-voltage meter to check mine, using Pin 3 on the diagnostic socket, so your advanced technology should work.

If the older cars detect a fault, you get a constant percentage reading, and there is a table to decode it in the manual. If the reading is fluctuating, then you should see a change as you diddle the mixture. You should not have to turn it very far to see a change.
