Honda's DPFI uses two injectors that operate completely independently from each other. With the MPGuino connected to only one of the injectors, you will not be monitoring all the fuel used by the engine. I don't know how useful the data from the MPGuino is in this situation, which has kept me from getting one.
Ah. I see. Thanks for the education, Gasoline Fumes!

My Civic is the base model. I believe this cheap model ONLY uses one injector. I'll look under the hood and check the manual in the morning. But I'm pretty sure this model ONLY uses one injector.

Is your Civic above the base model?
