I have another approx. 200 miles left on this tank. I'm also temporarily off work awaiting a contract extension and also a new contract, so it could be a while to the next fillup.

I monitor Lean Burn status on the ScanGauge. Here's how to program it. Of course the procedure makes no sense if you don't have a SG or you don't have it's manual that gives you the basics of programming its X-Gauge options. Given those basics, one can do this.

TXD: 686AF10115
RXF: 044105150000
RXD: 2808
MTH: 000100020000

and save.

If the value for LBN = 0 you are in lean burn.

here's what I monitor on the SG
Coolant Temp - - - - - - - - - - - - Throttle Position
(due to grill block) - - - - - - - - -(LB kicks out at 32 TPS)

MPG or Intake Temp - - - - - - - - Lean Burn Status
(cold intake kills LB)
Coast long and prosper.
