Pathfinder's are made by Nissan I believe. Take it there and they can calibrate the oil, or water. Why would you need to calibrate an SUV anyway.

If using snow tires on any three of the wheels--the odometer will have to be re-calibrated.

If you want to know how much a gallon will cover using a Ground Logic machine. Fill the tank with water and spray until you have used a gallon of water. Measure the square feet covered. Make a fill chart and mix accordingly.
If a gallon covered 3000 sqft for instance--(and you are applying Trimec at 1.1 ounces per thousand sqft) then you need 3.3 ounces of Trimec per gallon.

talked with Brice today and in case anyone cares, in 2nd gear, full throtle, and 25 psi, you are putting out .3 gal/M.

Wait a minute. That is way too little solution per minute. At 4 mph you should be covering over 3000 sqft per minute. You output needs to be about a gallon per minute...unless you go real...real slow.

Find out how many sqft you are covering per minute. Then find your nozzles total output per minute. Find your output ounces per thousand sqft. Mix accordingly (after you make a fill chart).
