I do not believe this worked for me, mileage drop of 10mpg. I would expect some difference but not that much. Back to my 10in. hg. takeoffs.

The 3 cylinder Suzuki engine mostly works in the power side during normal driving, but when you keep vacuum at 10 or higher, you are getting the best economy.

Went back and checked my fuel log and the first tank with vacuum at 10, I am sticking at 10. That is until I get MpGuino, I just hope I have it together before the Ohio/PA meet on the 14th.

You'll probably have your Guino built before I get back from my trip to finish calibrating mine. Maybe you'll be able to share some of the finer tips.

I hope to have pretty soon I did the upgraded shipping. When I get the stuff I will be like a mad scientist until finished. I will definitely share any info I come up with.

Button cover idea I had.

Thanks for new sig Johnny!!

I got my MpGuino all built and tested tonight!!
dcb is the Master! All I need to do is mount into a case now. I had a case made but ended up slightly too small now I have to go looking in the morning for something to use. And I am changing the type of buttons I had. Can't wait feel like a kid at Christmas. Gotta go to bed so morning gets here faster. I will post pics when done.

And I still have to clean car the rest of the way from the Meet of Johnny's. Went great by the way will be there for next one for sure.

My MpGuino

I figured out my alternator kill is causing it to reset, from the initial voltage drop when shutting off.

The injector kill switch causes it to lock up as well, so I am going to use dcb's recommendation for using the cam pickup wire to kill engine for EOC. No biggie just some solder and heatshrink to fix it. Tomorrow, tomorrow it's only a day away.

Hi Bob, what did you used to cover the wheels so neatly. I've been brainstorming ideas of materials, but haven't found anything yet.
