1. A method comprising:
operating an engine in an operating mode having a plurality of different effective firing fractions;
measuring an engine operating parameter during the operation of the engine at a current firing fraction having an effective
firing fraction of less than one;
averaging the measured operating parameter over a period that is based on and varies with changes in at least one of (i) a
denominator of the current firing fraction, and (ii) a repeating firing sequence length associated with the current firing
using the averaged measured operating parameter as the value of the measured operating parameter in an engine control calculation
or operation during the operation of the engine.
