it takes 1 second to wire up as it is plugged directly into your OBDII port under your dash, there is no actually splicing of wires or anything of that sort

I love mine. I mounted it with velcro on my mirror. The wire is the perfect length to mount it there.

I actually never use it for MPG that would just make me said lol.

Use mine constantly every time I drive. Trans Temp, Water Temp, MPH. For us guys that have Larger then stock tires and dont feel like shelling out the money for a Tuner its great to have a check up on what my actual MPH are lol

The laptop will log faster than your eye can ever read, and you can record more than you could see. Not to mention you can compare graphs in excel or other software. Great for comparing ignition timing vs wheel torque to determine if an alcohol tune is actually advanced beyond maximum brake torque. I get AEM software for free... considering I am an AEM licensed tuner for all of their aftermarket engine management hardware and software. You can also pin extra sensors that don't come on the stock engine management into the factory engine management to log them as well... for example afr.. knock... ect..
