In my truck I have on but it only tells the temp and has the compass. I know they have them where they tell you overall mpg and instant mpg.

How do I get that. Do I just have to replace the get that part and plug it in overhead or are there wires that are in the other models that run down to the car computer and what not.

Pretty much what would it take to get that stuff and where could I find one.

MIke.

i would think if it gives you mpg it needs to interface with the odometer and gas gauge.

Ya I am kinda scared but I do want to have the instant mpg so I can manage my fuel better.

Come to think of it I would be scared too but I think I could grow the balls to be able to look at it.

Anyone else know?

Eh it helps a little, not much. After learning a few things you'll never use it again. Stay under 65 if you want any kind of decent milage, it improves in traffic or behind bigger trucks, and cruise control makes a huge improvement.

Aside from that, if your truck only has a compass now, I highly doubt that it has the computer and wiring for the fuel use data...
