I'm going to turn the sensitivity up to the max and see what happens soon. I think this will be a winner. Oddly enough, popularity among the device seems to be that of a black sheep among economy modifications. Go figure. Nevertheless, I'm quite tickled with the final product, from an idea conceived in the middle of the night.
Major Kudos's to getting to the final product. I still think its a great idea.

I know with my own car it would be nice to have a product like this, because its so easy for me while driving in town to get carried away with the gas pedal. I have to many other things on my mind when driving and because of this my make a terrible eco driver sometimes. LOL
