Definitely interested in a diagnostics that I can operate with my laptop. Being a bit of a GIS/techno geek, one thing I might try is recording my typical engine/driving performance patterns in conjunction with GPS plots with the idea that I can begin to tweak specific driving patterns at specific points along my route (intially just using Google Earth). From that, I could plug in POI alerts to my GPS to give audio alerting to pulse up/glide, cut engine and glide, re-engage, and so forth. Eventually would also think about tweaking the fuel flow and minor tweak to the engine itself, but we'll see. All in all, it's a fun experiment to try and out-perform the previous tank!
