Hello all. Newbie here, first post here on GasSavers. GREAT forum.
I have a 98 Civic LX auto, and have been tracking my mpgs since I got it. I average about 30 mpg, with my best on an early summer jaunt up and down Rte 476. avgeraging just over 37 mpg . I was happy with my averages for a while. Since discovering this site, im not happy anymore.
I want to do what I can - within my sense of reason and my budget - but i think my first step would be to get a more reliable fuel economy guage - something like the scanguage. The Scanguage II is the only one I have been able to find so far - and $160 is out of my budget right now.
Does anyone know where I can find an affordable fuel economy guage???
You can try Ebay? If you don't mind a brink, you can also search for the older scanguage-- the first version. Has the same basic features minus new stuff and X-gauge. There is also a seller on another forum who has a used scangauge 2 for 100. If he doesn't have a buyer, I'll give you the link to his classified.
I would love to get the new one, but not enough funds right now (dam kids).
But I would like to start improving my FE, and i would like to measure how each action affects FE. I would love to log- through this site - how much of an improvement can be gained by many of the techniques and upgrades.
I dunno, i guess the question is, whats your price?
Do you have any pics? PM me...
