That's a common question. There's no one product like the ScanGauge for pre-OBDII vehicles, but there are numerous possibilities if you're willing to do some work.

There's a link in my sig to a thread about a DIY fuel rate meter; that's very basic and doesn't report MPG, but in that thread I've got links to other threads with better ideas. I am particularly fond of the one that suggests using a factory MPG readout that came in a similar model of car.

I think there were similar Acura models with mpg displays. Acura is Honda's upscale product line, and is mechanically/electrically similar to their Honda line.

See http://www.gassavers.org/showthread.php?t=4258 which is a thread about installing a 1988 Acura Legend mpg display in (I think) a 1991 Honda CRX.
