Attaboy, Metro. I knew you could do it. I have been sending you good luck telepathic messages for 2-3 days. Do you have snow tires for that baby?

As a matter of fact, it's currently wearing the Blackfly's snows! I had to put them on it to get it through the safety check.

Maybe you could modify the meter with a heated needle and then run some thermal paper past it while driving... j/k

But seriously, if you had a way to make periodic voltage readings with your laptop, you could effectively record the current at intervals by reading the voltage across the shunt (that's what the meter does). Depending on what other measurements you recorded at the same times, you could build some interesting data to play with (like vehicle speed, braking, battery voltage, SOC, etc).

There must be a cornicopia of A-to-D devices you can plug into an RS232 port with which you can take voltage recordings.

Good ideas. Something like this?

It would satisfy the nerd in me to drive both the cheapest AND most instrumented NEV in existence.

Or a DMM with an RS232 output:

Too expensive for Project Forkenswift, but I didn't even know they existed until you suggested it.
