Me too. In a 16oz bottle I blend 4oz Amsoil cetane boost and Amsoil tcw3 2stroke. Then from that mix half that bottle to roughly 30gal fill up.

I already purchased an OBDII bluetooth connector and I'm going to get the torque app for my tablet. That should give me all the gauge info I need plus logging.
I'll give a review of those two products. At $10.00 for the BT connector and probably $5-$10 for the app this could be a great alternative to the $400+ scan gauge and things of that sort.

Was wondering if anyone has looked at the Torque app available in the app store for iPhone\iPad? Is this the same one MM75 mentions above? Developed by K Solution LLC. If not, anyone found a good monitoring tool for iPhone\iPad?

I don't think the torque app exists for IOS. I just looked and te closest you've got is obdII. It's free so I say try it out and see if it works. Or get rid of the crappy IOS devices and go with android.. it's better on every level. I've had my work iPhone for a week and I'm starting to like it less than my old BlackBerry
