    EI fuel computer. I use this in a 50 Pacer with only the sight tubes for fuel quanity. Visual alerts can be based on time, fuel flow or even GPS signal. You could also incorporate EGT on one of the auxiliary channels and see how a lean or rich mixture exhaust gas temperature could make a change in fuel consumption.

    I think this EI FP-5L is now on my list of must haves. Thanks for the input.

    Ditto. I'm also looking at better engine monitoring options going forward. Seems like a smart upgrade.

    I have a stratux onboard and a great app for Android to go with it is Stratified. Gives AH and DG/w traffic and has a nice fuel reminder. All on my old retired phone.
