putting any sort of instrumentation to track fuel consumption on a non computerized car is very difficult. For a mechanical injection pump equipped diesel engine you would need to have a metering pump feed it just to track how much fuel is flowing to the engine. From that you could take a reading from the speedometer and calculate your fuel economy. This is not a simple task.
