The PLX Kiwi MPG can be mounted virtually anywhere in your vehicle.
Save Money and the Environment
Vehicles use a tremendous amount of energy just to move us around. An average 4-door sedan equipped with a 200-horsepower motor can create up to 150,000 Watts of power. It only requires about 50 horsepower to accelerate from a full stop, but this is equivalent to turning on 622 60-watt light bulbs at once. An average driver in the same 4-door sedan produces 19.4 pounds of CO2 for each gallon of gasoline burned--or about 8 tons (16,000 pounds) of CO2 per year.
Research has shown that sensible driving can vastly improve fuel economy. Users equipped with the PLX Kiwi MPG have instant access to fuel economy information, allowing them to adjust their driving habits and watch the impact in real-time. Not only does this translate into potentially hundreds of dollars worth of savings each year, but it can also drastically reduce the owner's carbon footprint and help preserve our environment.
Easy to Install and Use
The Kiwi MPG is a simple to use plug-and-play device that works on all 1996 or newer vehicles. It installs in just seconds, using a single plug to connect with the on-board diagnostic port (OBD-II) that is typically located near the steering column. From here, the Kiwi MPG obtains detailed sensor data which is used to instantly calculate fuel economy.
The Kiwi MPG unit is so small and compact (1" x 2.5" x 0.5") that it can be unobtrusively mounted on your dash, steering column, or near the instrument panel. A 6-foot cord provides the flexibility to reach virtually anywhere in your vehicle. The two-button interface is easy to learn and navigate. Additionally, the Kiwi MPG goes into low power standby when vehicle turns off and picks right back up when vehicle turns back on.
In-Depth Fuel Economy Information
The PLX Kiwi MPG can display real-time fuel economy data in three different ways. In Instantaneous MPG mode, your current fuel usage is displayed constantly in miles-per-gallon or kilometers-per-liter. This provides you with instant visual feedback on how your driving habits impact fuel use. The Trip Average MPG mode displays accumulated fuel economy information that has been gathered over time. Users can reset this mode at any time to gather fresh information. The Kiwi MPG can also display fuel economy information as Trip Dollars of Gas Consumed. Your total dollar amount of gas is calculated over multiple trips. Like the Trip Average mode, you may reset this to zero at any time. The Kiwi MPG supports all worldwide currencies and international measurement units.
All-In-One Trip Computer
In addition to in-depth fuel economy information, the PLX Kiwi MPG can also display vehicle information in far more detail than most instrument clusters can. The Kiwi MPG is bundled with the following advanced meters:
- Fuel Used (Gallons, Liters)
- Fuel Remaining (Gallons, Liters)
- Distance to Empty (Gallons, Liters)
- Engine RPM
- Vehicle Speed (MPH, KMH)
- Coolant Temp (Fahrenheit, Celsius)
- Throttle Position
The PLX Kiwi MPG is also a diagnostic scanning tool. It can identify the cause of an illuminated Check Engine light, giving you the information you need before you visit an auto technician. This knowledge can potentially save you hundreds or thousands of dollars. If you determine that a trip to the mechanic is unnecessary, the Kiwi MPG can clear the Check Engine Light.
