MPG on laptop

Has anyone heard of hooking their laptop up to there cars?? I want to hook one up to a CRX so it displays such as a scangauge or MPGuino.. I will be converting te electronics to OBD1 when I swap the VX motor into the CRX

The swap won't be for a while, however.

I did, but with an obdII. What I use is called OBDwiz, cost about $40ish. It is a little cumbersome to use the laptop though, and I wouldn't advise doing it solo unless you are logging and look at it later.

So that's not going to work for me right? Cause I'll only have OBD1...

I'm guessing MPGuino is going to be my only option? Can I plug the MPGuino into my computer for charts and such??... Thanks

There are some cables which comvert OBD1 to OBD2 and also link to a PC via USB.

I have no idea about software though, it is something I have thought about to run with my in car camera. The idea would be to log some SG2 type data such as MPG etc. and have a split screen display showing instruments at the bottom and the view outside at the top.
