I've seen it done on the VX. The functions are as follows:

1. "Custom":
| MG Instant MPG | S Instant Speed |
| GH Instant GPH | C Current MPG |

1. "Instant/Current":
| IM Instant MPG | S Instant Speed |
| CM Current MPG | D Current Miles |

2. "Instant/Tank":
| IM Instant MPG | S Instant Speed |
| TM Tank MPG | D Tank Miles |

3. "BIG Instant":
| Instant MPG |

4. "BIG Current":
| Current MPG |

5. "BIG Tank:":
| Tank MPG |

6. "Current":
| MH Current MPH | MG Current MPG |
| MI Current Miles | GA Current Gallons |

7. "Tank":
| MH Tank MPH | MG Tank MPG |
| MI Tank Miles | GA Tank Gallons |

8. "EOC mi/Idle gal":
| CE Current EOC Miles | G Current Idle Gallons |
| TE Tank EOC Miles | G Tank Idle Gallons |

9. "CPU Monitor":
| C% Max %CPU utilization | T Tank run time |
| Free Memory (bytes) |

I'll buy the parts, build it, and ship it for $35.00. The parts take some time to ship since I buy my parts from China. If you want it sooner I'll need an additional $10 to cover costs. Email me if you're interested at my personal email, and we'll get things going:

I sent dcb a PM, I'm considering making a few MPGuinos but I don't know where to get the PCB the "preassembled" version uses, and it's more slightly expensive and bulkier to put it together with an arduino.

I really don't care much about the cost or the size of the components. Do you know where I can get a kit?

I put one together after spending about an hour reading the wiki. The required parts are: 1 screen, 1 arduino, 1 transistor, 2 diodes, 3 resistors, 3 buttons, some wire, solder, and a soldering iron. Parts are detailed here:

MPGuino - EcoModder

I found everything except the screen and arduino for under 10 cents, but the cost of tools and a spool of wire added to my build cost.
