Mpg monitoring on OBD1
My ECU works apparently under OBD1 protocol. Obviously the Scangauge is not an option for me, so I was wondering if anyone in here have experienced any monitoring device (on dash type) for OBD1.

I have found one called SuperMID, its made by a guy called Yoshi in Japan and it costs 160 us dollars. Any other device anyone have heard of?

I'm thinking as well using my laptop and run some diagnostic software kinda thing. So I'll be googleing for a soft that works OBD1 as we speak.. If anyone have information on the subject please get back to me it will save me some energy.

Cheers.

RE: Mpg monitoring on OBD1
There really isnt much out there for OBD1. Problem is the engine management system just isnt that smart. You can buy a scanner and plug in and you can see all the parameters for all the sensors but as far as mph or mpg I dont think you are going to find anything like that.

That one in Japan I would do a lot of research first as I've heard of people getting taken on purchases from over sea's and have no recourse after the sale.

Good Luck!

What kind of vehicle do you have? I have a couple options for you if you have an early 90's Nissan/Infiniti product.

Depending on the reason you have for gauge, there are other options. What comes to mind is that if you check your mileage at the pump anyway, and just want to keep an eye on your foot, a simple vacuum gauge is the old way of doing that.

RE: Mpg monitoring on OBD1
My reason is that obviously I prefer to have a machine that does the math for me as I'm best in sport.

I have an interesting option as my Japanese engineer didn't answer my emails, it will be by making myself a cable to link to a laptop serial port and get my stats trough cracked software. Only problem is that I need to fix my lighter plug on my dash..

I did not mean to insult you, I'm sorry. May be you need a hollyday :s

Here is a very interesting link for those who rides a trashy commodore (1995) like me, they can get their automated stats as well for real cheap, take a look at this link:

With the right information its obviously possible to build yourself any cable for any car and hook it up to a laptop to get your stats, no matter the protocol.
