So...it's like the engine hour meter found on a lawnmower?

Fitting...I guess... :p

vibration hour meter...

Keeps track of how long the engine is running....

Change the oil every 200 hours for synthetic..

Much better metric than miles...

I've got one just like that. Never could find a location to mount it in the car which would reliably keep the meter running while the engine was running though.

Thought about mounting it somewhere on/near the engine. But, that would be a bit inconvenient. Maybe they vary in their sensitivity.

Here's the meter I have, and I think Matt does too.

I suspect one of the many gauges available within the Ultra-gauge will do the same job.

It's in the menus, never saw such a thing to be useful though. I'd hit 10,000 miles long before the engine would run a 200 hour cycle.

It's found under:

Menu>Gauge Menu>Select Gauges>Select Gauges>Next>Next>Next>Next>Run Time.

The counter starts when the engine starts, stops when the engine stops.
There's also a counter for the ECU.
There's also an odometer for the Check Engine Light.

I tried to post the list of gauges on an UG but got the "Thank you for posting! Your post won't be visible until a moderator approves it." Sorry, tried.

Thanks for approving, JPaul

Oh gosh you actually tried to attempt to list ALL the gauges the UG gives you? *gasp*

There's way too many to choose from! :D
