ScanGauge / MID...

For the few remaining skeptics who question the utility of FE instrumentation ...

Once prolific GS member 95Metro installed a MID in his 95 Metro 1.0 5-speed roughly 7 days ago.

In that time he has passed the 60 mpg segment barrier AND the 70 segment barrier, and is predicting 80 will fall in the very near future. Best segment to date: 77+

Went driving around with my buddy today with the broken honda tranny and didn't watch the ScanGaugeII enough and was seeing 36mpg until I slowed and coasted a bit and worked it back up to 39 then left it idling with the A/C on a few times to bring it back down to 38 for the day - still not bad for a bunch of stop and go driving with the Geo battery in the trunk, 6 gallons of water on the back seat and a passenger.

94 and 95 metros should be identical.

It's a mystery! He just said he had to go. He might be back some day. There's a "goodbye" thread around here somewhere.

EDIT: but he still updates his own site regularly. We're still trying to figure out who pissed him off

Hey just a reminder I have a 94 4 door hatch back going away to car crusher heaven - let me know if you want anything off of it - has two good front tires with plenty of tread on them.

does it have a good head? I am looking for another 3 cyl head. I have a valve going down so I am wanting to go ahead and do a buildup on another head and swap it onto mine some weekend.

I didn't think it was possible to hypermile below the epa ratings, but you have proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt. Matt, I think some code needs to be changed for him

hahah I just noticed that. Just wait till I get the supercharger and 4.11 gears on there and I will set the record at around 5mpg

I guess the script isn't checking +/-
