EPU tank and motor pressure telemetry equations?

Can anyone help unravel the discrepancy in the EPU tank and motor pressure
telemetry equations?

The telemetry spec for locations #101 and #102 give the equations for the EPU
pressure items:
Tank Bar = 0.815 * X - 1.381
Motor Bar = 0.835 * X - 1.253

The P3T program uses approximately the following equations:
Tank Bar = 0.084 * X - 1.3
Motor Bar = 0.082 * X - 1.4

To further confuse the issue, there is a document distributed with P3T,
"P3D_AnlgP.htm" that says:
Tank Bar = 0.835 * X - 1.253
Motor Bar = 0.815 * X - 1.381

Currently, AO40Rcv is using the same equation as P3T instead of the spec.  This
may get to be important if the EPU is activated for maneuvers in the near
