MQ4 && MQ8 PPM data

Hi,

I’m using this working library to extract H2 & Alcohol in PPM from sensors.

I only need the PPM for my project as I want to send this as an osc message.
But the code of the library is made up so I can only use the whole data table instead of the ppm.

This is the code:

  Please take care, arduino A0 pin represent the analog input configured on #define pin

 This example code is in the public domain.

//Include the library
#include <MQUnifiedsensor.h>

//Definitions
#define placa "Arduino UNO"
#define Voltage_Resolution 5
#define pin A0 //Analog input 0 of your arduino
#define type "MQ-8" //MQ8
#define ADC_Bit_Resolution 10 // For arduino UNO/MEGA/NANO
#define RatioMQ8CleanAir 70   //RS / R0 = 70 ppm  
//#define calibration_button 13 //Pin to calibrate your sensor

//Declare Sensor
MQUnifiedsensor MQ8(placa, Voltage_Resolution, ADC_Bit_Resolution, pin, type);

void setup() {
  //Init the serial port communication - to debug the library
  Serial.begin(9600); //Init serial port

  //Set math model to calculate the PPM concentration and the value of constants
  MQ8.setRegressionMethod(1); //_PPM =  a*ratio^b
  MQ8.setA(976.97); MQ8.setB(-0.688); // Configurate the ecuation values to get H2 concentration

  /*
    Exponential regression:
  GAS     | a      | b
  H2      | 976.97  | -0.688
  LPG     | 10000000 | -3.123
  CH4     | 80000000000000 | -6.666

  //Remarks: Configure the pin of arduino as input.

  MQ8.init();

    //If the RL value is different from 10K please assign your RL value with the following method:

  /*****************************  MQ CAlibration ********************************************/ 
  // Explanation: 
  // In this routine the sensor will measure the resistance of the sensor supposing before was pre-heated
  // and now is on clean air (Calibration conditions), and it will setup R0 value.
  // We recomend execute this routine only on setup or on the laboratory and save on the eeprom of your arduino
  // This routine not need to execute to every restart, you can load your R0 if you know the value
  // Acknowledgements: https://jayconsystems.com/blog/understanding-a-gas-sensor
  Serial.print("Calibrating please wait.");
  float calcR0 = 0;
  for(int i = 1; i<=10; i ++)
  {
    MQ8.update(); // Update data, the arduino will be read the voltage on the analog pin
    calcR0 += MQ8.calibrate(RatioMQ8CleanAir);
    Serial.print(".");
  }
  MQ8.setR0(calcR0/10);
  Serial.println("  done!.");
  
  if(isinf(calcR0)) {Serial.println("Warning: Conection issue founded, R0 is infite (Open circuit detected) please check your wiring and supply"); while(1);}
  if(calcR0 == 0){Serial.println("Warning: Conection issue founded, R0 is zero (Analog pin with short circuit to ground) please check your wiring and supply"); while(1);}
  /*****************************  MQ CAlibration ********************************************/ 
  MQ8.serialDebug(true);
}

void loop() {
  MQ8.update(); // Update data, the arduino will be read the voltage on the analog pin
  MQ8.readSensor(); // Sensor will read PPM concentration using the model and a and b values setted before or in the setup
  MQ8.serialDebug(); // Will print the table on the serial port !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is the table !!!!!
  delay(500); //Sampling frequency
}

This is the library:
From 63 till 103 is the part that prints the table. I want to get the _PPM alone in my loop so I can add it to my osc message.

I tried several things but nothing gets the _PPM message in my SerialPrint and or OSCmessage
