Only a switched Input So she's still a 4 wire install.

I've got it sorted, it saves every vehicle stop, refill and every 4 minutes of driving incase of turning off the car mid drive for some reason.

This means negligible loss of fuel captured, and zero battery drain.

This was necessary due to the TFT not being able to restart for some reason. I put that in the way too hard basket. This works just fine.. And I calculate you can drive an average of around a million kms before the eeprom needs to shift to the next block.

Happy to buy one to play with. Not hard to get imperial units, I presume?

Oh wow, I haven't even thought about imperial.

I guess I could dive into the code and see what I can do to revive it!

The original MPGuino could be changed between imperial and metric in its settings. Not sure how much of the original code you retained.

It took some doing, but Imperial has been re-enabled!!

It will be a setting only available upon flashing the Arduino, not on the fly, as per the original code.

It wasn't that hard but making the graph work backwards was fun :P (higher number=better economy)

Nice looking project. I'd be interested in trying one (U.S. gallons and mpg) depending on price

after some time off I got my ass into gear and got a page ready for these bad boys to send out

http://glengineer.epizy.com/

3 units are available for testing if anyone is interested.


thanks

I might take one when I'm done replacing all of the siding and windows in my house. Estimate 2-3 months before my SO wouldn't kill me.

I'm going to pass. Your price is reasonable considering how nice your unit is, but I'm broke and can build my own mpguino for cheap or free if I can find the time lol
