I forgot to mention here, I added a metro specific wiki page (with an mpguino block):
Metro - EcoModder

I do think it would be more accurate to use the odometer, or the mileage posts if your odometer is off due to tire changes/etc. I've seen the SG come up short before and speedometers are notoriously off.

Generally speaking asian cars will be a multiple of 4104 and gm cars will be a multiple of 5000 though.

I "pre-calibrated" both my stock odo and the SG2 against Google Earth: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...uracy-110.html

I'll likely be home around the end of the week. Looking forward to finishing the setup & build of the other guino.

Any idea for VSS and Fuel setting for a full size Ford??? That is a 2000 Mercury, more or less the same as the Crown Vic.

I get a kick out how many small car people are fighting for more MPG...

I also get a kick out of my hot rod Ford with its 4.6 V8 that gets 29.8 MPG highway...

And averages 20.MPG City to the combo is say 24.5…

And I am also working on a 1993 Chevy Van with a 5.7 350 TBI V8 soon to be a 383 with TPI.

And anyone playing with Hydro and other things?
