    dude, i tried connecting a scan tool to my 14 mirage and it made it run like **** and tripped the light. Unplugged it and the light went off a bit later when it realized nothing was wrong.

    Hello wwjoshdew and welcome to the forum.

    Some OBD-II adapters are known to cause problems for this little car, especially cheap ones. Try another, better quality unit.

    Yup.

    My ScanGauge works fine. But a cheap bluetooth OBD adapter I got on eBay caused problems.

    This is driving from north of Ottawa Canada to Delaware U.S.A. I must say though, that at times I was 10 mph under the speed limit when going up some of the hills. My secret was in never exceeding 2,100 RPM. I'm glad I was not the victim of a road-rage drive-by shooting. But, just so that you know. I was able to drive that distance on one tank of gas. And here's proof in the pudding of what the Mirage is capable. Name:  IMG_3326.jpg

    Wow, you drove over 860 kms to a tank? If it took 31 liters you got over 60mpg with a cvt?

    Wow, that's some hyper-mpg's from a CVT.

    So far it's been my best achievement. But it was not without people shouting at me and flipping me the finger along the way and trucks wanting to drive over me from behind. I admit sometimes I would shut the engine off on some of the long downhills. But yes, CVT. And no cruise control. My main eye was on maintaining low RPMs as much as I could.
