Hey all, I've just bought an AU II series ute and it does not have the Litres Per Hundred display my EL fairmont had.

I'd be happy to hear I can just buy one ready made to fit, but a way to get it working on a small form factor pc (or netbook) under the car seat, connected to a dvd screen showing me error codes, coolant temperatures, brake rotor temperatures and air intake temps would just be a dream come true.

This is my next mission, to get all those displays onto a 7inch or so single din dvd screen.

I figured oil pressure, oil temp and boost/vac measurements can be taken using standard gauges, it will reduce the overall complexity.

Any advice guys?
Matt
