Finally mounted

I received my VMSPC and installed it on a Panasonic Toughbook that I placed in my upper cabinet above the drivers seat. I then ran the cables down to my monitor that I remounted directly in front of me above the dash board. I also installed a new Aladdin joystick so now I can have my back-up camera running all the time and still see all of my engine pids without having to keep hitting the switch.

Here's my SilverLeaf VMSpc display that I have been using since installed in 2010. I added one little display for the Rig Height in Feet and Meters a year ago.

My layout, the red dot to the right is for the cruse, red off, yellow on but not set, green on and set. I will past the procedure to adjust your fuel mileage below that Martin posted on the VMSpc forum yrs ago. I also have a file showing how to add the cruse control if needed.

We just came back from 3500 mile trip and according to VMSpc with no multiplier or offset we got 12 MPG, but by Flying J's pumps I calculate 9.74 MPG. This seems to be more in line with the 13% figure but still low. The speedometer is much closer to the VMSpc reading. 12875 miles on the speedo and 12928 on VMS. Accordin to our numbers our en ine is about 23% "0 timistic" with the fuel. The speedometer/odometer readings are so close that there is no point in trying to correct them. (Keep in mind that you will get some variation just from things like the tire pressure.) So we will leave the speed and odometer alone, and adjust just the fuel items. Let's start with the Rolling MPG, Fuel Rate, and Instant MPG. Start the Parameter Editor (VMSedit), and enter the following Multipliers: - For Rolling MPG and Instant MPG -> 0.81. - ForTuel Rate -> 1.23 Leave the Offsets at zero. Now lets take care of ~ the trip odometers. In VMSpc, in,the Advanced menu, set the Fuelmeter multiplier to 1.23. -- As for your experienceJ-75, you just learned one of the "secrets" that most people never learn. Often going *downhill* is harder on the chassis than going uphill!

I forgot to add just to the right of the red dot is MPH of cruse set and I run the VMSpc on a cheap 10 inch laptop, have used the VMSpc since 01 and would not want run without it.
