Hello from Ireland

I registered here before, but forgot my password... and the password to a new address I had set up. Anyway, I drive a 1.4 diesel Peugeot 106. It does 55-80 UK mpg, depending on how I drive it with no modding. I'd like to use some instrumentation on it to monitor my fuel usage and if possible, show maps and/or logs showing the most efficient routes to travel to given destinations. It would be nice to get it working with my PC too. Obviously my car won't have this OBD-II stuff on it though, being an older European car.

Anyway, Hello, and I hope to learn something new from you all.

Yeah... but it's not very exciting. It's just a old European superMini with no modifications, just regular service and light driving. Thanks for the welcome.

It may not be very exciting to you, but we don't have them here on the other side of the lake.

I'll take a few shots of it tonight then if you're interested. It's a typically French car. Fairly round, not that fast, handles rather nicely, very comfortable and very fuel efficient. Not that exciting to look at as I say, but I suppose it's something different for you lads.
