I would go with the MPGuino, because it'll be easier to get your hands on and cheaper, though it doesn't have as many shiny features as the superMID.

How are the settings on the SuperMID affected by changes in the condition of your engine, weather and other factors ?
I had my SuperMID set accurately at one time or another, but now the thing is all jacked up.

Also, ( I know I asked this before ) I'd like to set my SuperMID to read accurately, but I don't know my present FE.
Without going through a full tank and several hundred miles just to get my FE, is there any way to set this thing to read accurately ?

Thanks guys

So how do you get a hold of one of these super mids? I just recently bought a '90crx hf and am frantically trying to find ways to improve mpg's to make the most of it. Currently at 53 mpg's regularly driving like a grandma with no serious alterations since I got the car. Can you help me?

I also just bought a 90 HF on Saturday... would love to have a monitor but not a ton of time to R&D.. need a "turnkey" setup... has anyone seen detailed instructions on working install?

barchetta: check out the MPGuino subforum. Same idea as the MID, but more affordable and possibly easier to configure as well.

PS: unmolested CRX HF? Envious.

Yeah with 155k miles on it too.. Only one modification.. an alpine stereo but stock speakers... I scored big time.. I wont tell you what I paid cuz you will be annoyed. I was patient and it paid...

I'll check the sub section.. I've determined a monitor is #1 way to get better MPG on an HF.. and I think I am right.. its all about the right foot.... I dont even know if I have cruise control (did any HF come with it?)... but I want to do a cruise based on throttle position... saw some messages about it.. I CANNOT BELIEVE manufactures are not doing economy modes on cruise control... although I have no hard data to indicate it would have as big effect on MPG as I think it would...

thanks

Yeah, don't tell me the price.

You're right that the nut behind the wheel is the quickest path to better fuel economy, but don't underestimate the power of instant/resettable MPG feedback to help you adjust that nut.

Have fun.

Thats what I meant.. the monitor is crucial to adjust your driving habit.

I re-installed the SuperMID in my '93 Civic DX, but i'm not getting the speed setting to work. Any ideas on what i could have done wrong ?

I replaced the VSS with an aftermarket part, but I'm almost sure the VSS is identical ( electronic not mechanical ) so what could i have screwwed up ?

Coming from the VSS, there is a Yellow wire with a white stripe, a Yellow wire with a blue stripe, and a black wire which i assume is the ground.

Currently i have it wired to the Yellow wire with the white stripe.

I should mention that the readout for distance below average speed is working.
If there was a problem with the wiring to the VSS wouldn't the distance parameter no show ?
