Ovation 3+1 with No plus 1

Post by scotcal » Thu Jan 09, 2020 6:30 pm

We are starting a project to convert a unbranded site to a chevron Extra Mile....
Older Ovation 3 + 1s are staying, EMV upgrade ETC.

Heres the strange.... the site only has 2 tanks. 87 unleaded and 91 premium.
A previous owner thought they might add a diesel tank, but that never happened and never will.

All their PPU / grade selects are crappy looking, so the plan is to replace them and use Chevron overlays.
I would like to install 3 button grade selects w Overlays.

My dumbish question, can I flash the IGEM Template and have the dispenser operate like a Gas only blender (B12/3?)
I think everything gets assigned via template?

You can flash as 3+0, the only thing I can think of is the ppu boards might have to be changed also, 3+0 used uses 3 ppu board, 3+1 uses 5 ppu board.. And unplug the whip cable on the single grade meter..
Are you here to raise the prices?

I thought it would work even though the sign said "OUT OF ORDER"

It's come to me over the years that orange cones are idiot attractants.. :P

Also if you want to save the guy some money, just load it as a 3+1 and disable the diesel. Unplug the nozzle boot etc...

If you want to make it look like a 3+0 then the 5 position PPU's will have to be swapped out with 3 position PPU's. As stated by petrodood1

Other wise go with CyclePowers info...

Yeah and definitely get rid of the nozzle and line for the +1 or customers are going to act retarded and complain that they can't fuel when they're using that one. :lol:
