Questions about mpguino

sorry if this is redundant, but I just have really been able to find answers.

Would an arduino board with usb work with the source code being developed?

Does the code specific the 16x20 lcd screen/could it easily be changed to work with a different sized screen?

Does it interface with the obdII port/how many different wires need to be spliced into from the car?

would it work with my 97 escort?

some of you seem to be powering it from 9v batteries or simliar, I could splice into power from somewhere else in my car, no?

Does it keep average/trip mpg along with current mpg?

I just really want to have a constant read out of my mpg, and I don't really want to spend 150-170 dollars on that.

Plus DIY or die.

keep up the great work.

thanks, zach.
