Need electronics experts

DieMaster just sent me a clock for the Civic Si, which will fit perfectly in my Civic VX.

My question... can SOMEONE make something simple that will turn this into a MPG display? I could buy a cheap voltmeter on ebay for $20 and mount it somewhere to monitor the AFR, but a real-time MPG display would be a lot cooler IMHO.

unfortunately, I'd prefer not to have my MPG display be a laptop.

Unless we can shrink it to like 2x3 inches.

I hate the L/kM also. I prefer kM/L, which is what the SuperMID displays.

Matt, are you saying that you want someone to make the OEM clock display MPG? Or do you want someone to mount a MPG display into the OEM clock location?

I do have a spare OEM trip computer from an 88 legend that I would be willing to let go for cheap if you want an OEM Honda MPG computer.
