Parts are in hand and assembling might take place this week or next. My next offspring is going to be born this Friday. Expect to see kits for sale around March, maybe sooner if I can find free time.

I have a proto-board made up with the circuit and will be installing ithopefully by the end of March. After that, it's time to etch some traces onto a circuit board and get cracking on selling them.

Would there be a need for a SuperMID once I have my idiot light working?

The SuperMID would be of more help for an instant mpg readout. The Lean burn indicator is mainly for watching when the car is in lean burn.

I'm going to be doing a lot of driving soon, I hope I can get one of these once it's all tested and ready!

Ok, so for someone who isn't very technical at all (unfortunately). With this kit, after installation, you can see when you're in lean burn. What would you use this info for? To fine tune your driving habits to try and drive in such a way that the lean burn indicator is on as much as possible?

You pretty much hit the nail on the head with that one, McPatrick.

My Circuit would provide a means of showing you when you were in lean burn so that you may drive in such a manor as to maximize lean burn on time.

I know all about how much time babies/kids can take up, so you probably find yourself without much time on your hand, but do I dare ask if you have a new guestimate as to when you'd have your kit ready (which hopefully would come with a fairly idiot-proof how-to)?

And in what way do you expect would the info that this indicator gives you change your driving habits when it comes down to religiously obeying the shift indicator already present on the dashboard?

Should I think of a situation for instance when you're already in 5th gear, going up a hill and with the new indicator finding out that you can still drive in lean burn going 55 mph but not doing 60 mph? Or what other situations would the extra information be helpful for?
