Scangauge type instrument for obd1?

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone made a Scangauge type instrument or any good mpg display for obd1 cars? Or are they only for 96+ cars?

You'll want to look into getting yourself an mpguino.

It reads from the vehicle speed sensor and counts the injector pulses, by default. I was thinking of adding additional feeds to mine, but for now it gives a lot of combinations of data from those two feeds, such as gallons used, gallons per hour, a digital reading of miles per hour, idle time, instant mpg, average mpg, gallons left in tank (you input tank size in setup), miles left in tank, and a few others.

Awesome, thank you guys!

Can you guys think of any other usefull instrument to help me keep an eye on my mpg other than the MPGuino, "fuel saver" vacuum gauge, and a wideband o2? (I plan on getting my ecu chipped and tuned for economy)

Or would those three devices be all I'd need to monitor my engine/fuel usage?

I find the MPGuino to be adequate on it's own.

I have looked high and low. Since MPGuino isn't selling them any more, does any one know of an alternative? Thanks.

I realize I am replying over 3 years later, but since I am currently looking into it...

The Wiki page on here for mpguino has three sellers listed. One says they are closing up shop while the other two took me to a page to buy their mpguino. Did you try contacting these guys? Just wondering.

Apologies in advance if you already checked these...
