Is it possible to adjust Lamda without a duty cycle meter???

Can I use a standard digital DC voltmeter, and adjust it to 50% of the battery voltage while running??? Is my thinking on that completely wrong??? Would a 100% duty cycle be the same as the battery voltage??

Thanks,
Jay.

You are very close to right. It depends on the voltmeter. The average voltage at 50% duty cycle is half of line voltage. You would probably be better off with an analog meter for this.

Thanks Steve..

I went to Sears at lunch, and picked up the $30.00 meter with a duty cycle function..I'll take a look tonight if my wife will leave me alone long enough.. I've been under the hood, or under the car alot in the last two weeks...
