That should be fine. If you're at a light and stop the engine, then start it again when you go, the OBDuino will start back up when you start the engine, resuming your fuel consumption and distance from where you stopped.

The issue comes in when doing EOC, you'll be racking up miles on your car's ODO, but not in the OBDuino, so the trip distances will not match up, and your eco-tricks won't show up in your OBDuino-reported economy.

Maybe we can change the RPM->0 check to add a timeout so we can record our miles without the engine running for EOC? Or maybe we can only save when we have RPM->0 and speed->0?
