Hi Steve,
As Anton pointed out in this thread:
Subsurface shoulbe be able to display oxygen and diluent consumption
simultaneously. At least for units like MkVI which logs cylinder's
pressure natively.
Right now I'm record pressures manually: I add start/end pressures for
default cylinder (diluent) and I add manually the oxygen cylinder
recording start/end pressure. Unfortunately on "Info" tab gas
consumption is not calculated (as raw liters) even for the default
cylinder making the whole procedure for ccr pretty useless.
In my message I tried to describe IMHO a use case for units equipped
with shearwater electronic:


What do you think?
