GPH.......MPG
LP..........LOD
MPG-self explanatory
I use LOD when I can DWL. I use LP to keep my self in closed loop on acceleration whenever possible. GPH is mostly just gee-whiz info, I haven't though what else to put in that spot. I don't generally try to maintain constant mpg during acceleration, just during steady driving. Brief low mpg during acceleration followed by coasting seems to give the best average mpg.

I have 6 items I want to see:

------------------------------
Big Current MPG on MPGuino

car has OEM tachometer

MPG --- LOD
VLT --- FWT
------------------------------

Current MPG lets me see how things are adding up.
Tachometer - a must for shift points
MPG - for instant readout
LOD - watching to keep around 75 during pulse
VLT - i have starting issues of volts drops to 11
FWT - I have found FE is better if I don't push the engine hard until it's over 148f

also: sometimes I will swap out VLT for an x-gauge of current trip average speed.

...this question sounds like an excellent candidate to be POLL response, ie: select the four items you typically display.
