Hello From the So. Cal Desert

Hello All'

Ive been lurking for a while so I thought I'd better finally introduce myself. Ive been a 1997 Geo Metro LSI owner for a few years now and after rebuilding the engine, I have become very aware of the MPG I used to be getting since the addition of a ScanGauge to my car. I am currently getting around 43 - 48 MPG and am looking to improve that.

Welcome. Do you mean the "sparsely-populated desert" or LA? I remember my 1st night it California - my friend's roommate kept me up 'till 4, trying to explain who he was in terms of the car he used to drive. I'm glad you have come where you get some respect.
