are you guys using the velcro?

That stuff won't fly here in AZ, the sticky stuff just melts and makes a mess.

I used to have the same problem in Texas, but then I tinted my windows and started using a windshield sun shade, and kept my windows very slightly cracked. I never had a problem like that again, and got a much cooler interior for myself along with it.

Once you do the tint, shade and crack thing you'll wonder how you ever got by without it.

My ScanGauge came today, and I'm trying to figure out a clean OEM look. I plan on getting a Nakamichi CD400 single din unit with a Metra dash kit. I'm curious to see if anyone was able to put the scan gauge in there in the pocket.

BTW, I finally got 41mpg today, before I got my scan gauge. I hope that it will help me get to my goal of 45!

Yea, I saw that one, but I was curious about the pocket. I really don't feel like making one like that because I need to remove it from time to time to use it to check codes on my friend's cars.

I would think that the lower pocket would be nice if it could fit right in, kinda like my wideband sensor on my old car, it would look nice and out of the way when I have it in the car, but can still take it out easy if needed:

Taken from eBay, I'm curious if anyone has done it, or has measurements so I can take a ruler to the scan gauge:

I have the same single din adapter and the ScangaugeII doen't go right in you would have to cut the lower pocket a bit to fit...

OK I tried it and after 2 weeks I looked at it today and found the velcro is sliding down the steering column as the glue melts in the heat.

I'll have to find another way to mount it.

MPG

Has anyone done any realtime milage checks at different speeds...say 50-55-60-65-70-75? I realize everycar would be different, but figures like this on a calm day on a straight level road would give an indication where milage drops off....for some of us that can't quite shell out the money for one right now.

Thanks in advance if anyone would take on the challenge!

Depending on temperature, road conditions, etc. our most efficient speed is in 5th gear/OD somewhere between 35 and 45 MPH.

For highway speeds 51-55 MPH is the most efficient, with a large drop-off between 55 and 65 and a punishing drop-off above 65.

Bailout,I must disagree,I can still pull 41-43mpg at 70-75mph,and 52.5mpg at 53-58mph,cruising when possible,from 58-53mph,not letting speed drop below 53.I do have an opened intake and exhaust,so this does help,but either way,there is only a 20% diffrencen from say 55-75mph,not such a huge drop off,actuallly pretty proportional, relative to your speed.

eco,

Most folks would call a 20% difference in fuel efficiency a huge drop-off.
