Canadian Mazda

Hello;
Just bought a 02 Mazda 626 I4
I drive 50+kms to work every other day; as I carpool.
Looking at getting a bluetooth ODBII as its 1/3 the price of a ScanGage and I already have a laptop. I found some software that says it displays MPG, untested yet.
I may start a forum for Canadian/Cold weather mods.

Current Mods:
17" tires
1W solar panel to reduce alternator load

Next Mod:
Grill Cover
