    Unsure what area this relates to but im struggling with an ignition map

    Im trying to write a microcontroller program to run the ignition in my car.

    However im struggling to interpret values from a table properly if the value i need falls inbetween the values in the table, im not convinced the method im using does a very good job.

    Going by the image i have attached what would be the value for advance be if the load was 67 and the RPM was 4600?

    thanks

    Linear interpolation:

    1. Assume that the increase between 60 and 80 or 4000 and 5000 respectively is proprtional. That means: To reach the 67 you have to calculate: 67 = 60+(80-60) \cdot \frac{7}{80-60}. So the increase is \frac7{20} of the difference of the 2 corresponding values.
    Now calculate the 2 values in the 4000 and 5000 column.

    2. The increase in the last row is \frac{600}{1000} = 0.6 of the difference between the 2 corresponding values in the last row.

    3. Now calculate the increase between the newly calculated values.

    4. I've attached a table with the results.
