If you know what you are doing, this will save you some time, it was never meant to be a complete consumer of my personal time (more time has gone into it than you can imagine), and the investment is not representative of such. It is available cheap and the community is the support model.

That is why I started this thread:

Understanding and Setting up MPGunio:

http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tml#post133760

I found that there was a little too much info and some of it was misleading as it was part of the earlu versions, and that it was a little too much reading to thought.

Hope this helps, it covers all the current settings defualts and a tip or two.

Rich

I am interested In taking that off your hands for the price you stated.

I would like pics of the unit to assure it is as described.

FYI, when calibrating the MPGuino, be sure to bring a calculator that can hold 9+ digits

Looks like mine is finally calibrated and working great. Thanks to all that helped.

what setting did you use to calibrate your Civic injectors? I tried 241,623,906us and 500ms, but that gave me ridiculous "60+mpg at any speed" readings. Cutting 500 down to 100ms seems to give more realistic numbers, but I wont know until my next fillup.

also, FWIW, mine is wired as follows (no blown sensors ...yet):

INJ - A1 (at ECU, not at injector)
VSS- tapped off the instrument cluster (the screw holding the speedo in - no cutting or soldering)
+12 and GND - spliced into the clock harness


PS - I got 241,xxx,xxx from the "235 cc/min" that all D-series rails are supposed to spit out.
