I am diving a Kiss Sidewinder and Kiss Spirit LTE.
The Petrel does not natively log cylinder pressures (although one of my backup computers the ix3m and ratio have just came out with pressure transmitters).
I do record the pressures manually at the start and end of the dive and input those in the equipment section so subsurface should be able to read and display them.
