New member with a new eco car (Mirage)

Hi all,

So we just bought 2 mirage's. Both 2017 SE manuals.
One is mystic black the other wine red.
I installed a scangauge E right away.

I am liking the forum and it seems pretty active.

Thought I'd say Hi.

Official welcome here, Pryme.

Are you planning any further ecomods in addition to your Scangauge?

I don't know if you saw it, but I made a handful of quick 'n' dirty aero mods (plus tire pressure) to a 2014 5-speed I got to test out:

[QUOTE=MetroMPG;537119]Official welcome here, Pryme.

Well, as of right now just the scangauge, which I'm really liking now that I figured out how to set it all up how I like it gauge wise.

We did order up the factory mitsubishi center consoles though. The mirage is seriously lacking in cubby/storage space, so the center console will be nice for storage and arm rest.

It's not really a eco mod but I did pick up a pretty cool psi gauge at walmart made by slime. It's their best one. It's digital and has a small flex hose and light plus a bleeder built right into it. All with a nice back-lit display.

I checked out your mods. Pretty sweet.
