Jason’s Ford with a Boarduino-carburetor

Jason Pepas has an old Ford truck, but he must love it a bunch because he upgraded it to have a Boarduino-controlled carburetor. Lots of people hack their engine computers but this is the first time I’ve heard of someone building such a thing from scratch.
The upshot? He’s tweaked the truck from 9-10 mpg up to 14.5!

Lots of pictures are in the forum!
