Thanks for the tip - unfortunately it doesn't look like those will work for the 2015 Subaru. And it turns out I made a mistake when I went to graph the data: it looks like it's actually just one byte governing the tachometer. (My original numbers were all scaled by a factor of 0x9A or something like that)

Decimal:
<pre><code>117 ~= 650 RPM
141 ~= 1450 RPM
174 ~= 2000 RPM
181 ~= 2500 RPM
196 ~= 3050 RPM</code></pre>

I can't seem to find a regression line that both a) reasonably fits this anecdotal evidence and b) extrapolates well to handle higher RPM's.

I may have to revisit the tachometer at a later date/time.

2015 Subaru Outback 3.6R here...

I'm almost 100% certain that 0x0144 contains RPM readings. With the car in park, I slowly revved the engine from its baseline up to about 3,000 five times, resting at idle between each. The last time I was careful to push a bit higher than the others to make sure the pattern was clear.

This pattern is shown by the lower order bytes in the first word of 0x0144.

Obviously the numbers shown aren't integers representing RPM directly. It's also far too high to be showing 10x the RPM.
