Just setup my new MPGuino - will it lose memory with out power?

Got my MPGuino in the mail this week. it's hooked up and working beautifully.

I got the speed/distance working perfect (default was right on) and have the fuel ball parked Farly good. top offed the tank for calibration.

so far it is stuck into a piece of fome stuck wedged into the space between the windshield and the dash. I bought the radio shack project box for a more finished install.

If I unplug it before I fill and get the numbers for calibration of fuel, will it loose it's data up to this point?

it won't lose the setup values, those are stored in eprom, but the trips (i.e. tank miles and gallons) live in ram and get reset when power is lost.

Thanks.
I will hold off on unplugging until the 1st calibration tank is done.

2nd question, I took a few photos during the install thinking I would post how my install went. Would that be a Value here at EcoModder.com?

(hook up went smooth)

Pictures, especially of the connection points (i.e. what wires and colors and where) would be most useful, make a wiki page for vibe if you are into it
