New to forum/ hello

I just joined the forum after being a lurker for a while, I drive a 92 Integra, and achieved my all time best of 39mpg. I also got my new MPGuino a few days ago and am exited to get it installed, hope installing it goes well, might have a few questions once I start.

Welcome, man. Got a vacuum gauge? That can help with some of the best hypermiling techniques. (Lunchtime over... back to work... !)

Welcome!

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I might be installing my mpguino later today. I just finished the enclosure, I plan to add how I made it, with some pictures, later on. I was planning on wiring it to the main harnes at the ecu, I have read that some people have problems with readings when wiring at the ecu, even with the right wires. Then they re-wire in the engine bay and get the proper reading. Does anyone have an opinion on the best spot to splice in for vss/injector?

I got my Mpguino installed yesterday, I used the wiki page to get some base values, there was a 95 Integra on there so I will start with those numbers. It seems to be working, but at times the mpg reading seems hard to follow, jumping up and down a lot, mostly when using cruise control. I have been doing some reading, and it looks like what is happening to me, has happened to others.
