Hello All

Hello!,

I'm Bow (pronounced like "Bow and arrow", not the command) and I'm in Houston, TX.

I just stumbled on that fourm that other day and decided to join.

I live in Houston, TX and Commute about 100 miles round trip a day, so I have an interest in saving some fuel.

My daily driver vehicle is a 1998 Nissan Frontier (2.4L Inline-4, 5 speed manual).. it is currently at 260,000 miles. I currently get around 20 mpg with mixed driving conditions and running it on E40 fuel.

I was wondering where the best place is to get a Scangauge II, (good price/quick shipping).

Great site, I look forward to digging into it more.

Welcome to EM!

Topher is correct, if you order through us (soonish) I should be able to have it ready to catch the shipment that is leaving today.

Welcome to the site Bow.

EcoModder just started selling scangauges. You can get them here. The price is actually very good. I just had my car broken into not too long ago and my SG was stolen. Almost every other place on the internet was selling them for $160 + shipping. Alternatively, you might find a used one on ebay going for a bit less if you wait around long enough.

Now, my turn to question. E40 fuel eh? I sense a story behind that. Do share.

I have a couple questions...

What is the Red Star/Blue Star Membership?

How do you ship them?

USPS?
UPS?

Basically it's a way to show support for the site that also removes advertising.

We ship USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation.

My job is pretty cool.. at least for about another year... Then I'll be looking.

I look forward to getting the Scangauge, it will let me keep a better eye on the truck.

You drive a truck?? Blasphemy!!

(Kidding). What kind of truck is it? Have you considered adding a fuel log entry?

(I know, you've only been here for 5 minutes and we're badgering you...) :P
