definitely hold the burn off :-)

i imagine a new MAF is pricey. i was just interested in the concept because in the yards they are recycling them by the bucket fulls.
A turbine, or paddle wheel is less expensive for measuring liquids. measuring low fluid flow is still at least a $100.

what do you think of dividing pounds of air by 100 to get an approximation for gals. of gas. 14.7 x 6.25=91.8
then run a half tank thur. to tweak the cal. to individual driver and car.
