Not towing anything I typically cruise at 70-72 MPH. With a significant headwind or crosswind I'll slow down a bit. The comment about a big difference in MPG between 60 MPH and 70 MPH is spot on. It is noticeably more expensive to get there quicker!

How about this; The ELM327 Programmed Microcontroller with blue tooth capability. It plugs into your OBD II port. Just be conscience of fitment. You can then download a free android program to your tablet and view engine perameters in realtime. Other programs cost a little, but might suite your individual taste. Some ELM 327's go for as little as $20 bucks. Might be worth a look guys. Sure beats $150 bucks if its giving you what your looking for.

Here is an excellent explanation of the ELM 327 "bridge" and how it works. What is ELM327?

Our rig isn't new enough to have all the digital gew-gaws. I usually keep to the truck speed limits - after all, it's just an 11-ton box truck in fancy dress!

Not sure. Seems the "recommenedapp" per my reading is Torgue Lite, which is free. Torque Pro, costs a few dollars and the review says it has more features. I just mentioned it here in case someone might want to try it in case of spending big bucks on the scanner tool.
