Well I had a CEL and decided to get a reader. Got a Memoscan U381
www.memoscan.cn/en/showproducts.asp?Cid=9
which does live data. Now this may be a daft question but since it does live data can I just hook it up and start and run the car with it hooked in? I presume so. Instruction manual is limited.

CEl (which had gone out) was caused by P0420. I have cleared it and will keep an eye on it. Have read plenty of posts on here about possible causes etc.

Yes, that is indeed what "live"/real-time data capture is all about.
