Wow. That's impressive. Did you mess around with any of the other numbers to get that?

I'm still having screen freeze issues but I haven't had time to re-solder and add a separate battery to mine.

I hear you on the cold/no plug in mpg issues. I have giant hill driveway/not up to OT to kill my FE every morning. I almost wonder if it would be better to actually let it idle up to temp first? *GASP* Hey! I can to use the guino to figure that out.

Dontcha love your MPGuino?

Ohh yeah, especially now that it works. The only issue I have had since rebuild was today, actually. I forgot and turned key off while rolling into driveway. That freezes it for me everytime. I usually kill it with the button on my shifter but forgot today, . Ohh, well and Winter is going to suck the life outta my FE. Wish I lived in a warmer climate. Like Brazil, hot weather and women.

Ohh and only settings I messed with was vss and m/gallons.

Did you re-solder yours? I'm having reset and freeze problems. If your problems stopped after re-soldering it would give me hope.

I originally built the Iduino one, but now just using the iduino to program the Atmega chip for a scratchbuilt Guino. Works like a charm now. I was having alot of issues when it was the Iduino one. Prolly all the extra connections I had with that style. I would recommend just heating your solder joints to begin with though.
