pgm-f1 causes drain

If you're using this mod, I suggest switching your Ultragauge on and off 20 times (with the engine off) with 3 second pauses, and checking the drain in your battery. The pgm-f1 in my car used .05v each time it was switched back on, thus 20 times drained 1 full volt, causing the alternator to run more when using the kill switch, and lowered mpg.

I moved the kill switch to an injector wire under the hood, and the issue went away.
