The Fuel Efficiency Adviser plugs into a vehicle’s OBD-II port, which can be found under the dashboard in cars, trucks and other vehicles made since 1996. The monitor displays real-time fuel-usage information as you drive. Enter the amount you paid for fuel, and the adviser can compute the cost of each trip. The display shows miles per gallon, gallons used per day, cost so far that day, carbon dioxide emissions and other data.
The information can help drivers adjust their driving habits to increase fuel efficiency. For example, drivers can instantly see the gas savings that can be achieved by maintaining a constant speed and coasting to red lights.
The Fuel Efficiency Adviser is available from Fuel Efficiency Centers of Dallas, Texas, and retails for $159.95. For information, visit www.fuelefficiencycenters.com.
