Right, but that won't me much of use to measure instant FE with a decent accuracy. But for the start you can try such setup. Everything depends on how many pulses you'll get per minute from those flow meters, the more you get the better for an accuracy of the whole measuring unit.
Anyway I think that it would be much easier to change MPGuino code to read pulses from two flow meters than build a net od NAND gates to get right amount of pulses.

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."
