That's the wise approach. Don't be scientific about it just calibrate is properly and that will be the best and most acurate method to get your MPGuino throw the right numbers.

Gerhard Plattner: "The best attitude is to consider fuel saving a kind of sport. Everybody who has enough money for a strong car, can drive fast and hit the pedal. But saving fuel requires concentration, self-control and cleverness. It's a challenge with the nice effect of saving you money that you can use for other more important things."
