I've been tempted to go out and make my own bsfc chart. Using the scangauge, do multiple runs on a flat level road. Start at 1000 rpm so and run up through the rpm range. One run at 5% throttle, one at 10%, etc... Rig up a video camera for review and chart out the Gallons / hour vs rpm.

or something like that...
