I bought it primarily to monitor Volts, Temp, Mileage & 1 other which is undecided @ this point. Since the install of the EFan & the underdrive pulley I really need to monitor the coolant temp & electrical voltage a little closer & idiot gauges just don't do it for me.

hmmm, neato! I wonder if that would fit in the little cubby below my AC control where my airbag disable switch is?

I've read a bunch of reviews on it & they are all positive.

brb....lol

EDIT:

Cubby is tall and deep enough, but not wide enough. 0.8 inch = 4/5 inch. Cubby is ~4.25 wide. Could probably do some cutting, or maybe even a mounting plate. Hmm where else could it be placed "out of the way" but easily accessible/visible?

Snazzy! It just hooks up into the OBDII port?

How much did that thing run you?

I'm guessing here that yours is a OBDI.

I wonder if that would fit in that small cubby above/below the headunit. I guess I could cut it out and make it work.

"I love that thing. I think it's going to pay for itself. It's telling me that the spark is being retarded on regular gas to the point that if I change to premium I'll get better mileage." -- Calvin L. McDougal

Does that make sense or no? I guess it would depend on what kinda car he's driving. If he's supposed to put premium in and he's putting regular in his sports car, that's pretty stupid. But if his car requires regular, putting premium in it wouldn't do anything. So he may be stupid, or he may be stupid.

does anyone know if the mileage calculator has an adjustment for compensation of tire sizes?

I doubt it but I'll let you know for sure when I get it.
You probably need to get something like a Xcalibrator 2 Tuner to adjust for tire size.
