So, I have planned to use this 125000 << (15 - idx) equation with
approximating the array members.

About the difference in results we would get after approximating isn't
much of a problem IMHO because gas sensor is primarily used for IAQ, and
IAQ is relative to the resistance reading.

For eg:

Resistance(ohm) IAQ
value < 30K Very bad
30k < value < 50k worse
50k < value < 70k bad
...
..
so on..

So, what I simply imply is the scale will be adjusted and nothing else
changes, unlike if it had been pressure, temperature, humidity.

The IAQ implementation is userspace application suggesting
good/bad/ugly air quality.

And since we know David Frey is planning to use this sensor in his
product mangOH board.

So, David, how are you planning to use the gas sensing part in your
product ? RGB leds, buzzer, alarm ?

Thanks Andy for the suggestion :)
