I know the UG will work with a '97 but which features will NOT work? I'm looking for mainly Instant MPG to try and adjust how I drive and find out things like which gear to be in for certain conditions like lower in-town speeds and climbing hills. Also how lightly I can go on the gas pedal to hold highway speeds. Instant MPG will give me the feedback I need. I would love overall MPG but it doesn't look like this feature is compatible with the '97 because the speedo is cable driven and not electronic. If this is the case will Instant MPG be not available also?

i agree, between engine load and tps, you can infer quite a bit relative to driving style & potential mileage savings. the UG actually taught me just how inconsistently i had been mashing the pedal!
