I don't know but if they are on the best selling list for amazon there are more than at this site. I told my brother about them and he said he had already looked at one but it couldn't tell him oil pressure??? Whatever, the point is people are finding it. I just picked up a 2nd supermid from Sean88.

Excellent! Too bad the people that live around me are ANYTHING other than mileage maniacs. I am the only nenpimania guy in Toyota... at least that is what I wish to believe!

Seriously though, there is one guy down the road with tires bigger than my car (no exaggeration at all), and it has about a 10 foot lift on it. Everyone I know drives a BIG *** SUV. Think Excursion-size. I don't know a single person who drives a small car. Why? Japanese companies pay for 100% of their workers commuting costs -- sometimes MORE. So, whether you have a Prius or a monster truck, the only thing you pay extra for is the weight tax and shaken every two years.

Japan is much different than most people imagine. These people are disgustingly consumerist and incredibly wasteful. It saddens me to speak with old and young people here, and see the shockingly different viewpoints that they hold.

Excess for the purpose of excess. Sickening really.

Oh, and I'm guessing that people have a hard time reading the "no idling zone" signs that you see everywhere. Perhaps they need to make it into law.

Yes, the no idling zone. Schools and certain business establishments have taken it upon themselves to promote fuel savings and reduced noise that come from a car sitting around idling. As in, Japanese people like to sit in their cars and listen to music, talk on their cells, and watch t.v. with their car idling.

In Texas, certain vehicles are subject to "no idling" laws. E.g. trucks at the loading dock are required to shut off their engines.
