Indeed this can be reduce to:

125.000 << (15 - idx).

The real question here is if we approximate 255.744.255u to 256.00.00u how
much different is the result. Being a gas sensor I think it is very
hard to appreciate.

We can go with this formula + adding a comment with the table with the
exact coefficients.

thanks,
Daniel.
