comment What essential preparations should I take before winter driving?
A proper oil for the temperature is key, really. If you're running too thick of an oil you're going to suffer hard starts and increased wear.

comment Why are my wires melting together?
Sounds like quite the short circuit. Did a bunch of fuses blow at once, or did one blow and then more follow later?

comment Does the tachometer provide any indication of fuel usage?
I don't think mine reports accurately. I'm not sure if it's the ScanGauge's fault or my car's computer. It's MPG claims are wildly optimistic, so my actual GPH usage is higher (maybe 0.25 or so) and the extra digit is being truncated and left out of the equation. Still useful though.
